Wholesome Living

I believe I've mentioned before that I love all things wholesome and good.
Because they're just that; wholesome and good.

This world could use a lot more of those two adjectives.

I love anything that inspires you to:
better yourself, get back to basics, 
simplify, hold your family closer,
learn to love those who drive you crazy (it's called charity), 
educate yourself, learn new skills,
and enjoy the land.

There is something so profound in growing your own food and seeing for yourself the magic of what this earth can do for and with you.
I love it!  

Which is another reason why I'm leaving the beauty of my area and moving back to a place that has a long growing season.  'Cause I like to grow things.  

Recently, I was introduced to a couple of great items.  
Items that I would LOVE to own.
To enjoy with my family and to loan out to others. 

The first item is the DVD entitled, 'Food, Inc.' 
Using Amazon's own product description:
Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the
livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Food, Inc. reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation.

You can watch the trailer for it here.

Another wonderful item is the set of 9 DVDs entitled 'Homestead Blessings'.   
The West ladies- Jasmine, CeCe, Vicki and Hannah  host these DVDs from their farm while demonstrating  skills in the following areas:
soap making, candle making, bread making, canning, gardening, herbs, cooking, dairy and sewing.   
Many arts that are being forgotten today.

You can find these wonderful DVDs here.
 You can also look for them at your local library- or even request them.

Here's to living a more wholesome and agrarian lifestyle!
