Little Miss Green Apple

Dear Friends,
Fair warning – my next batch of posts will include ‘fingerwork.’ My big woman hands are being manipulated by forces beyond my control.

Little Miss Green Apple is a friendly eco-lady who loves living in her green apple.

The other night she told me 2 things and suggested I share them. I’m sure many of you’ve heard or have visited – as bloggers are quite worldly – these special places. But, for the few unaware or for those that have forgotten (like me – I’m still working on the memory thing) here they are:

The Human Reef “The Silent Evolution”
This particular reef created in 2010 lures tourists away from natural reefs. Nature’s process will eventually take over these human sculptures (180 tons worth) sunk 30 feet off the waters of Cancún. One can swim or sail over this spectacular water-wonder.

Food Forests
This self-sustaining ecosystem promotes healthy food diversity as well as aiding the environment. The food forest – like its ‘natural’ counterpart – is created in layers. Each layer yields foods for consumption, fuel, fiber for clothing…, fodder, fertilizer, farmaceauticals, and FUN. Many tropical countries have been tending food forests for hundreds of years. The Beacon Food Forest in Seattle, is the largest public food forest in the U.S.. Food forests can even be sprouted in urban areas!

If Little Miss Green Apple passes on anything else, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Thank you and goodnight. May you dream of sweet apple faces…

  1. Feeding you some compliments on your two excellent recommendations. I’m going to Seattle next month. I will keep an eye out for the Beacon Food Forest. How cool!

    • My son recently bought a National Geographic book about odd things – the reef was one…I was blown away by the images…so cool.
      And the Food Forest (I love saying that) was in my local paper’s mini page today –

    • Yeah, I thought the food forest was hip! I picked that photo ’cause I thought it was pretty…there are many photos showing food diversity if you Google… and yes, gourds are squashy and one can make food, soup, even gin!
      I love saying Food Forest it’s FUN – I’m trying to make up a song just so I can sing Food Forest falala…!
      I hope all is splendiforous in the world of Chowder!!!

  2. AnnMarie, I’d never heard of either place so I’m only too happy to learn of them — and they’re quite fascinating! Love the “fingerwork” and the photo (your little boy is so adorable!).

    • I was really amazed with these places too – the people of our planet are so very cool…
      And thanks, for the art thumb up! I’m having too much fun alone in my studio, though my family checks on me now and again. And, my big son was little once and had a head shaped like a green apple 😉

      • I know what you mean about working alone. I just sit here at my computer … well, actually, I just have to get up and take a walk because it’s beautiful out today … but I, too, sort of get stuck back in the house, on my computer! 🙂
