Namaste dear Well Wishers,
Today, August 31st 2012, marks the final day of our month long theme giving thanks for our food with an original blessing on the Well Wishers Group blog.
This idea grew out of our gratitude for the abundant harvest season at the beginning of August with Lammas.
Along the way we highlighted an organization called Not Far From the Tree (NFFTT) started in 2008 in Toronto, Canada whereby local residents sign up their fruit trees and volunteers pick the fruit (mulberries, cherries, plums, apricots, apples and pears and more).
With this initiative one-third of the bounty goes to the home owners, one-third to the harvesters and another third to a local social service organization, Wychwood Open Door was one example cited.
We also took time to praise the work of Front Door Organics who have been delivering fresh organic produce to homes in the Toronto (Canada) area since 1997. Every week seasonal fruits and vegetables are showcased.
At home, we will indeed continue giving thanks at our Meals and I’ll keep writing them down in a designated notebook as Ashtar tunes in to the sacred space between thoughts putting the pictures to words.
Today’s offering, sent in Peace, Light and Love,
