NAT URE’S CALLING

\n

 

\n

POLLUTION. PESTICIDES. GMO’S….all are wreaking havoc on the environment.

\n

We have become so remov ed from the very thing that sustains us …Nature.  Nature feeds our bodies and its innate beauty nourishes our soul.

\n

Nature is screaming for help. Genetically modified seeds are laced with disease-resistant chemicals that may be toxic to the environ ment at large.  This upsets the balance of nature in ways we c an't yet comprehend.

\n

 

\n

There are things you can do to bring back the natural balance:

\n

Plant an organic garden or assist a friend that has one.

\n

Support organi c farming.

\n

\n

Last but not least come to see ‘Nature’s Calling’ at The Loft at Liz’s and take home a plant or seeds from Liz’s garden.
