Fed up of big banks, chain stores and supermarkets? Do you care more for muddy dogs over McDonalds, coastal erosion over consumerism, and Marmite over mass media? Then you’ll love this site, where you can find oodles of helpful info, to help restore our green and pleasant land.
This is NOT a little-Englander site. So if that’s you, you’re not welcome here. England is a tolerant, animal-batty and loving land, where people flee from oppressive regimes, knowing they will get a warm welcome, and a nice cup of tea! Many people voted ‘out’ for Brexit, simply because they don’t want to see more consumerism, more globalisation and more politics!
So however you vote, whatever you eat and wherever you live, make yourself a nice cuppa (use real tea and a teapot!) and sit down to find something good. This site is a work in progress, but it’s all designed to be interesting, fun and upbeat. Everything is sweet and pretty, to ensure that the medicine goes down, without any ranting!
From learning about where you to live to finding out where local farm shops are, you’ll also discover ethical fashion and beauty, through to finding free vet care for poorly dogs on low incomes, and how to help the homeless. All posts are accompanied by pretty pictures (often from favourite artists) and the odd cool music video.
You also won’t find any social media here. But do feel free to share any posts on this site to your own social media accounts, if you use them. Dealing with social media in the past, has meant that more time is spent trying to figure it all out, than simply writing good content to help. And that, surely, is what the Internet is all about?
Trees are our kith and kin, birds flying in the sky, bees and wasps, butterflies and snakes, tigers and elephants. We need to understand that all species are related to each other, all of us have evolved together. The sun heats the soil, the soil feeds the trees, the trees feed the birds, the rain feeds the trees. All beings nourish each other. This is ecology.
Sometimes I come across a tree which seems like Buddha or Jesus: compassionate, enlightened. Giving shade to a cow, berries to a bird, beauty to its surroundings, leaves for the soil, asking nothing in return. How much can I learn from a tree? The tree is my church, the tree is my temple, the tree is my poem and my prayer. Satish Kumar
