I was recently reflecting on the community we’ve been creating here at Simple Organic over these last couple of years. I love hearing from my readers. As I think about my goals, I’d love to know what yours our too, and how I can direct our blog in a way that will help spur you on this year.
As for my green goals for 2012, I continually feel like I’m baby stepping toward a more natural lifestyle for my family. I don’t actually have a lot of specifics I’m planning on focusing this year though other than gardening.
We didn’t do a garden last year because we moved in the spring and I was quite pregnant. Instead we just enjoyed our CSA bounty and took advantage of a couple of bulk opportunities through them that came up.
I know how fun growing food can be with kids and I also love being able to walk out to the yard to pick something for dinner. I have a small patch of yard that I hope we can dedicate to this year’s garden, and I’ll be sure to share my experiences with you along the way.
I don’t have the greenest thumb, mostly due to laziness, so this is quite a goal in and of itself for me!
If you’re looking for some direction for yourself in the way of green goals, we have some great resources in the archives, in addition to Tiffany’s great post from last week sharing her goals for this year. And next week we’ll have some helpful tips on achieving your goals.
The amazing writers that I’ve got on my team gives Simple Organic a real variety when it comes to experiences with natural living. Some of us have been cloth diapering for years but have only scratched the surface of nourishing foods. Some of us focus on saving green as well as going green, and some of us are passionate about cleaner cleaners and purer personal care products. When it comes to green living, we can all learn so much from each other.
One of the things I love to do every year is hear what my readers are into and what you want to learn more about. Your ideas and questions have given us some great topics to pursue in the past so I’d love to have you chime in again this year.
Are there certain areas of life where you’d like encouragement to go greener? How can we at Simple Organic help you strive toward your green goals more effectively? What aspects of natural living are you dying to learn about?
