    Way to go Sarah! This is a nice intro as to why we should embrace permaculture. Being new to this whole “gardening” thing I have to admit I look forward to reading more about what permaculture is and the techniques associated with it. It is true that children do not go outside much anymore but this could be a natural consequence of the increased access to technology. It’s a real shame we can’t combine the two. I recently read an article where it stated that school dances may become obsolete soon (couldn’t find the article! Sorry!). The reason they gave (from what I remember) was that before technology became available school dances were a way for the younger grades to socialize with the higher grades and it was seen as extra time they could spend with their friends. Now we can message our friends at any time and talk to them ever overseas. Apparently no one wants to take the time or effort to get dressed up for a school dance when they can do other things. That being said I am happy we have technology, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to comment to you lovely people.

    …sorry for the long post. Lol!

    Love this post Sarah Beth. I am a counselor, recently turned writer, and am doubtful of returning to the profession, unless I decide to utilize a more holistic approach, if people will be accepting of it. I often like to use philosophy and nature in my approach but it has often been ridiculed. You hit the nail on the head with this one.
