Pacific Northwest Madrone – Depth & Integrity

Madrone Tree

“Magnificent, dramatic, exciting, mystical, inspiring, magical, sensual … these are some of the words people use to describe the Madrone Tree, a favorite of the hardwood trees of the Pacific Northwest.”

Monsanto sues Vermont for wanting to tell the Truth!

As you all know, I very rarely get publically involved in anything political or controversial in our blog, but this is something I feel VERY passionate about — keeping our food supply safe and healthy. So I’m passing this along and let you know what’s going on at the grassroots level. If you feel drawn to join in the support for Vermont (and ourselves), every donation helps, no matter how big or small.

Interestingly I received this from a blog I occasionally read from the UK through my Druidic connections. Read what’s happening with the state of Vermont and the giant Monsanto and what you can do to support Vermont and our rights to healthy food.

As this is a controversial issue, and we’re not debating its merits here, please do not post any comments. I’m just passing along information to those who may want to know and help.

We made our donation today to support Vermont.

We did just come back from a lovely trip gathering sage for our own ceremonial use. My next blog I will tell you all about it.

Until next time –

Pleasant Journeys,
