It’s the 22nd of April, which means it’s been a year since the last Earth day. It’s probably too late in the day to do big projects to commemorate but if you have any in mind save them for tomorrow or the weekend because Earth day is everyday. We should always be grateful to the Earth and replenish the environment whenever we can. Here are some projects you can still do today to celebrate Earth day and be planet earth friendly.

The growth in technology of the last couple of decades has meant a great deal of progress and moving forward. Technological advancements have helped big multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporations run as nearly completely paperless entities; technology has shrunk the world into a tiny global village and has made most of us global citizens. With the ever-changing and developing world of technology comes a downside.

Saturday, as we all know, was Earth Hour day. The lovely Pop Princess penned a little post on that with a few ideas on what people could do between 8:30PM and 9:30PM while their lights were off. Not only did I enjoy the post but I also found it quite useful, which got me thinking about environment conservation and green efforts in general.

“Greenpeace Africa is the direct offshoot of a movement that began in 1971 with a group of people outraged by the US government’s intention to do nuclear testing at Amchitka, a tiny island off Alaska.
Today, that outrage is focussed on the cradle of humankind: Africa. We are actively working in South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Senegal; the countries with the most urgent environmental issues – climate change, over-fishing and the destruction of the all-important rainforests- issues that affect the entire continent”

Every spot will be occupied, but I like to believe that the more the merrier.
The farm turns into a bit of a circus every holiday season and I mean during the June school holidays, Easter break and most long weekends. I’m not complaining because it usually means more hands to help around the farm, in the community and more hands that are going to give. The older children only come home towards the New Year, it’s a house rule – those who start the year together stay together. So we all try to be together in the first day of the New Year. I have only one child leaving this year; she is going to be with her maternal family and will only be back on the 30th. Two of my girls’ siblings are coming to be with their sisters and will be spending the holidays with us. There are also couple of friends coming in from Namibia and Australia, so Eden will be a full house.
