    May/June Happenings

     

    “I’ve always loved nature and being outdoors, and the sense that humans were doing more harm than good seeped into me like so many others and, though not an activist by any means, I began to take those many small steps to tread lightly on this Earth, live by example, and help wherever I could.

    Four years ago, I became a beekeeper and the learning curve shot up. Watching and learning about my bees gave me a holistic view of our world and how one small change – good or bad – can have such a ripple effect.”

    – Janice Sina, New Savvy Women's Alliance Member and Volunteer

    – Julia Condon, Founding Savvy Writer.

    Amazon Will Donate to Savvy through AmazonSmile

    A good book keeps me balanced. 

    Lately I have been stealing outside to my porch for some 2:00 sunshine.  I curl up on a summer's lounge chair, wrapped in a cocoa-and-camel checked flannel jacket and soak in New England's warmth-n-wind. This is my reboot time. I am re-reading Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable Miracle and loving every stolen minute. How I love her brilliant use of words and her genuine food adventure. I have a serious author crush.  Have you read her  book?  I suggest it for anyone who even slightly loves food. Or eating food. The topic of living for one year off local food creates juicy conversastion for a  book club as well. 

    Speaking of books, Savvy has some great news.
