Tune off Social Media, Go Plant

Social media can be a useful tool to pick your head up to the larger issues going on. If you have it tuned well you can see ample evidence of people who are getting things done and growing healthy food, seemingly easily. These can be great inspirations both big and small.

But online inspiration does not grow your family food or give you the satisfying taste of actually doing something important. It may even deepen an emptiness that can only be cured, by doing.

It really doesn’t matter where you live as everyone has their challenges. Get up, get out, and plant something worth your time and attention. One need not become a farmer with a bit of finesse and thought. A little focus here and timed “elbow grease” there will yield what you need.
