  • Self-Deprecating a path to Sustainable Living | The Lands at Hillside Farms
    the ideals of my work and the practical realities of living in our material world So here we go To begin people are driving 60 miles to eat at restaurants that serve local foods building 4 000 square foot homes with solar features and driving hybrids on the 70 mile trip from their homes to their jobs Once they get home they sit on Facebook ignoring the people who actually participate in their lives It is all around us But who gives a barn bat guano anyway I think I do but when I objectively review myself I see the poster child for unsustainable lifestyles I am disappointed in me and I am hoping you will join me in my attempt to make a shift that will impact the physical mental and spiritual well being of my friends and family our environment and me Here is my current state I weigh 310 pounds eat healthy foods and anything else I can get my hands on live four miles from work drive a truck that averages 11 3 miles gallon spend too much time working and too little with my family have a house without insulation high blood pressure too much stress too many pets and too much debt At this rate my epitaph will be He worked hard and died but now things are easier because he made less than it took to feed him I am a one man environmental wrecking ball and a societal menace committing foul travesties such as driving 5 miles in a seven thousand pound car to purchase 15 crickets in a plastic bag for a tree frog that wants to be believe it or not in a tree rather than a glass cage I can only solve one of these problems at a time and will probably try solving obesity 1 000 times but I will try my best with each starting with trucks crickets and fuel and resource efficiency Posted on Dec 3 2012 in Blog 8 Comments Comments 8 Responses to Self Deprecating a path to Sustainable Living Rayann Kline says December 10 2012 at 6 35 pm HA Isn t it true We all are touting the right thing and aiming for future goals while we live in the present problems Love the blog All the folks at the lands are inspiring and changing the area and I love it John Levitsky says December 11 2012 at 12 43 am Your idea and concept is absolutely true to your health and one key to your idea Chet is cooking at home Cooking from the raw form to the finished meal allows us to really know what is inside of the food we eat Additonally cook many things as little as possible to retain nutrients especially in vegetatbles I avoid many white foods since I have to watch my carbohydrate intake Potato without skins rice flour and white bread are seldom used in my home Great ideas Chet sabine spring says December

  • Can we really afford to keep eating unhealthy foods? | The Lands at Hillside Farms
    it is highly processed and comes in cellophane or is a soft drink stop consuming it Instead convert the dollars you would have used to purchase it and the medications that often are consequential to bad eating to buy nutrient rich foods I for one can greatly benefit from such a change A quick Google search reveals that the average American adult consumes 4 000 calories a day but needs only 2 000 While I might think I need to join a gym and get my next co pay together for hypertension medication instead all I need is to eat well work hard and go for walks with my family When considering the economics of a poor diet do the math And don t forget to add this to the equation feeling better How much do those 2 000 extra calories cost What is the value of being healthy feeling and functioning better and living longer In dollars three liters of soda equals a salad for two A candy bar equals a piece of fruit One co pay for high blood pressure pills equals a pound of wild caught salmon The conversions are limitless As I write I am digesting an evening dinner which was ironically held at the house of my friend who said we are outclassed when it comes to eating well While I had been finishing my work day my friends my wife and two girls prepared chicken kabobs with peppers onions mushrooms and a zucchini that was grown in another friend s garden Also on the counter were tomatoes and cucumbers I had the best meal I ve had in months I cannot tell you the cost of the two pounds of grilled chicken breast or the vegetables but I can tell you the pizza and

  • Teach by Example | The Lands at Hillside Farms
    or other adults realize the powerful impact they have on children Kids from when they are quite young often imitate the world around them Honestly I cannot think of a better way to teach children the value of kindness and respect than by example The great thing about teaching by example is that it does not cost money or time only awareness For instance if you see a piece of liter on the ground do you ignore it Do you toss bottles cans and newspapers or do you recycle Do you slow down at mealtime to recognize the farmers and others who worked so you could have food Do you take the time to share this with your children Even younger kids can have a basic understanding and appreciation how work and sacrifice fits into the big family picture When you see someone a bit different be it the color of skin style or general appearance do you react with hesitation or ever distrust Do you quietly volunteer for projects for the sake of kindness not kudos The mission here at The Lands is to teach sustainability and self sufficiency and we do this primarily through educational tours and workshops Each year our educators and animal co faculty members welcome nearly 4 000 students to the farm We stress the delicate balance among humans animals and nature demonstrating how we all are interconnected What is most satisfying about our programs is seeing our message click with the students You can have a profound impact a child s life by your everyday actions good or bad This means every day you have an opportunity to teach and ultimately help shape our future Posted on Aug 25 2011 in Blog Comments Off on Teach by Example Comments are closed The Lands at
