Healing Our Planet, Healing Our Bodies

Twenty seven years ago I had a breast cancer then a second and  a third.

After the first I was advised to leave my teaching job,  after the second I stopped drinking milk and attempted to eat organic.

By the time I had the third breast cancer I thought I was out of lifestyle options and feeling very frustrated.

But I did crave a connection with real earth.

So I put my shiny apartment on the market and looked for another way to live, and discovered Permaculture

This is wonderful way of living which imitates nature

Soil and water are conserved and plants are allowed to set seed and inter-planted for pest control. You are unlikely to see food plants in rows.

The permaculture site will look more like a food-forest with some open glades full of herbs and perennials.

Ten years later I am still working on creating such a garden.

It takes considerable physical work but this I love.

Surrounded by permaculture perennials and now many trees I have grown myself from seed I say thank you for the good people who created a system which not only can save our planet but help to heal our bodies.
