Good Karma With Fruits and Vegetables From Your Garden

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

If you’ve been following my recent blog posts, you know the best way for individuals to change the world is through one person and one experience at a time. Our positive actions create positive reactions which are passed forward in daily life. Sharing our best selves enriches the lives of others which in turn, enriches our own lives. This is a basic principle of karma. I recently read an interesting article on food gleaning which sparked the idea of sharing the overabundant harvest with which so many in the northeast find themselves as the end of summer approaches bringing a short growing season to a close. Want some ideas as to where to bring your bounty?

This is how it works. According to the article by Avery Mack in the July, 2015 issue of Natural Awakenings, “Food Gleaning – Harvesting Leftovers Feeds The Hungry,” food gleaners go directly to the farms and save up to 20% of unharvested food for the hungry.

We can do the same on a smaller scale in our communities. Gather up those fruits and vegetables and bring them to schools, community centers, assisted living and nursing homes, food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, churches, synagogues, temples and mosques. Fresh food is a precious commodity.

Google regional offices of the Society of St. Andrew, EndHunger.orgWisdomForLife.org and Tinyurl.com/PlantRowForHungry as suggested by Avery Mack.

Mack tells us about Jason Brown, a former St. Louis Rams’ center who learned about farming from YouTube videos, computer searches and talking with farmers. His 1,000 acre  First Fruits Farm provides a constant source of free food for the hungry. Great karma!

Don’t have a food garden of your own? No problem. Approach neighbors who may be willing to share. Get family, friends, neighbors and the kids involved. Develop and expand social conscience and consciousness.

One person, one experience at a time.
