    People Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    Spending time outdoors is absolutely important for our own spiritual and emotional development.  Too often we spend the entire day rushing from place to place and don't ever take the time to stop and connect with our surroundings.

    Pollinators are the reason why we have a good portion of the food that we have.  It is essential to our own survival to learn how to support them.

    It will make me think about what I am looking at the next time I am checking expiration dates at home, and could save some items from making it into the trash.
