There have been some beautiful posts written in celebration of Earth Day this year and each one has a slightly different flavour. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have, it is very special indeed to be reminded of how many people feel a deep and sacred connection to Mother Earth and wish to acknowledge her as part of their own being.
Leslie at Comfrey Cottages has given us a lovely lesson in the inspirations behind Earth Day, how it began and how it has grown to be a world wide event. You can read her post here.
Michael over at the always entertaining Mad Crow Herbalism has reminded us of the many ways we can strengthen our connections to the earth, even if we live in the middle of the city. Read his ideas and reflections here.
Sarah has encouraged us to plant some wildlife friendly cowslips in our gardens with this delightful post here. I do love cowslips, don’t you?
Susan at Stardragonfly Herbals gives us a virtual tour of her herb garden and reminds us why everyday should be Earth Day here.
Maggie has shared some thoughts and a lovely piece of poetry with us for her Earth Day contribution here.
Bridget at Arigna Gardener has reminded us of the wise and beautiful Earth Commandments. How wonderful if we were to hold these in mind just for a moment each day. Read her post here.
Over at The Sage Butterfly there is an Earth Day Reading Project and giveaway running throughout the month of April all about books that have inspired us to live more sustainably or feel more connected to nature. You can find out more about it here.
Danielle has written a delightful post in praise of spring wild foods gathered from the woods behind her house that will be sure to have you drooling. Read her beautiful post here.
Finally my own post, an ode to the South Downs, can be read below or here.
I also came upon this post today by one of my favourite artists, Jackie Morris. Sit down for a few moments and listen to her magical story of the Snow Leopard, a perfect way to pass a few special moments on Earth Day.
