audrey hepburn quote on gardening on the green divas

 

Green Diva confession . . . I just haven’t gotten into the garden spirit yet this year. Usually I’d have trays of baby plants all over the house by now! Guess I’m busy growing other things this spring. Sorry gardens! Some years I’m in the game early and plant my own organic babies; some years, I’m searching around for organic seedlings (which aren’t always so easy to find!). 

However, the garden bug always bites me at some point in the spring . . . so, I’m hopeful this post will get me going! Our beloved Green Diva Becky Striepe invited us to participate in Garden Week on Crafting a Green World

I got inspired by searching through our site and seeing all the fun we’ve been in the garden over the past couple of years. Hoping you will get inspired by this Green Diva Spring Garden Roundup (NOT the nasty chemical roundup either!).

1. Make it Green

green diva meg's gardenGreen Diva Lisa did an excellent post, 5 things to do to make sure your garden is greenwith some great reminders and resources for some of the basics, which are always good for a spring refresher (at least for this green diva!).

2. Compost Happens Man

Green Diva Gina did an excellent post with everything you need to know about composting, even if you don’t have a garden! 

3. Grow Your Own: Sustainable Seedlings

I had a lot of fun last year making DIY biodegradable seed pots to get my organic seedlings going. It may be a little late for some things, but there is still time to have your own seed pot making party. That didn’t sound right . . .  

4. Be Inspired by Local Farmers

We had a chance to some of our favorite local farmers last year . . . check out this fun short video . . . 

 5. Get Creative in the Garden

As the result of our fun farm tour (see video above), Green Diva Mizar got very inspired to make this hilarious and VERY green diva shoe planter

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
