Holistic Growth

There have been a couple points in my life where I felt a major shift in the person I am and the direction I want to go in life.  One of those points was when I was introduced to Alvin Scheresky, the man who first started this mill.  Alvin is a wealth of knowledge on many topics, but the one I find most interesting is health & healing.  Whenever we talk on the phone, I'm constantly taking notes.  He introduced me to Brix and calcium testing for my soil.  He taught me that flax is best consumed ground fresh, as it will start to go rancid as soon as it's ground.  He was the first person to teach me how to test my pH, and how to balance it if it's out of whack.  A quarter teaspoon baking soda in water, in case you were wondering.  And I can tell you from experience, it works!

Liebster Nomination - Danielle Robinson

Recently, I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Sasha Friess of Naturalist in Nicaragua.  This award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them into the blogging world.  It was an honour to be nominated!  I passed the nomination on to fellow bloggers that I admire, and one person I passed this on to was Danielle Robinson, or Dani as I call her.  She does not have a personal blog, but her capacity for caring for others and sharing wellness and health tips is amazing.  She is currently learning about permaculture and sustainable living at a place in BC and is possibly going to come to our farm next summer to share what she has learned and to learn about our methods.  She is also a certified yoga instructor and is completing a course in holistic nutrition.  You can check her out on Instagram here.  I have known Dani for almost 15 years now, and I feel lucky to call her a close friend.  Since she doesn't have her own blog, I wanted to share her response to my Liebster Nomination here.  I hope you enjoy! ..
