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

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
