Are Dreams Dead? I Hope Not!

                With the news all full of frustration and anger, is it possible that a dream can still come true?

I hope so, because we have a unique chance to make it happen. But it will take a little help from a lot of people.

The North Country Sustainability Center, Inc. based in Ashburnham, MA was officially notified that we have been granted our 501c3 non profit status by the IRS!  Now we can start raising the money to purchase the old riding stable and furniture factory to build our sustainability center.

Organic Green Salad with Herbs & Cheese

It is getting too hot in Central Texas for most lettuce and greens but herbs are still strong. When it gets too hot the lettuces will "bolt" or go to seed.

I took an organic packaged mixed greens salad from HEB Plus in Leander and added fresh, just snipped organic herbs which included Texas tarragon, parsley, 2 kinds of basil and dill from my organic front yard garden. I added some white crumbled… Continue
