Earth Day – Pensacola Florida

Pensacola celebrated its 32nd annual Earth day festival on April 23rd at Bayview park. We had a great time at the @earthdaypensacola festival and were marveled and inspired to see all of the community come together in reverence for this one and only beautiful planet of ours that we call Earth.

This video is a celebration of this community’s love and reverence for the Earth and all of its natural wonder. Whether through art, music, gardening, activism or just by being resonant with nature, we can all care for and celebrate this world in our own unique way.

What is Watershed? W/ Duane Tant

What is watershed? Why is it important to the health of our ecosystems, economies, and people? Let’s ask Duane Tant of Pensacola, Florda – an expert in the field.

This is Duane Tant of Lunahill, Pensacola, FL. Lunahill is a forest garden where Duane aims to “seek out global varieties of food plants that are not only adaptable to our climate zone – but adoptable to our dinner plates.” Coming from a systems engineering background, Duane truly has an inspiring mind and palpable passion for changing the world by bringing about awareness of food forests, forest gardens, and watershed health. As they say in the Lokota tradition, “Mni Wiconi.” WATER IS LIFE.

Your New Friends: Chickens

Kai: Our chicken keeping experience has been both fun, challenging, and surprising, especially with the appearance of a neighborhood rooster that showed up not long after we got our first two girls, a Brahma, and a Wyandotte. Later in the year, we felt we could afford to expand, and adopted two other ladies, our beautiful easter egger chickens. Throughout all of this, that little neighborhood rooster stole our hearts, and has kept the girls safe from hawks despite his size. In thanks, we’re keeping him warm this winter, and he has been paid in many treats.

While we’re still mastering even the basics of chicken keeping, I think we’ve learned a lot in just one year. We still hope to expand in this area of permaculture, but for now, we shall take care of our small flock. If you are a bird lover, or just want an interesting addition to your backyard garden, I highly recommend this pleasing, and colorful domestic fowl. I feel like they are a great tool to help children learn about animals, nature, and the “backyard” ecosystem. Be sure to get hens from a crazy chicken lady if you want a sweet bird you can pet and hold!
