sead of change

Kristen and I have done our best to keep our new years resolution, taking time on the weekends to hop down to orange county to volunteer for The Ecology Center, brain child of Kristen's sweetheart Evan Marks. In there own words..."The Ecology Center mission is to inspire and involve people in the stewardship of Southern California's environment, providing education in sustainable agriculture, ecological design and the heritage of San Juan Capistrano"

The education center is situated in a historical farm house with surrounding gardens and shares the space with South Coast Farms a working organic farm featuring community supported agriculture (CSA) and a mind blowingly beautiful (and cheep) farm stand.

Krissy and Evan

We planted ground cover to protect and fertilize the soil. We also planted over 3000 seeds to be sold at the upcoming earth-day celebration, and plans are laid to use our sewing skills to whip up some organic cotton aprons to keep those farmers clean. Come check out the Earth-day festivities on april 25th.

Ahhhh... little tiny baby seeds sporting under your care. Good for you for doing this. You know your Grandmother was born on Earth Day, wouldn't she approve!

The vegetables look a whole lot more inviting then our weary end of winter ones back east.
The delicious photo's made me HUNGRY!
