Tomorrow is Earth Day, yay! My favorite holiday of the year, hands down.
Earth Day is the largest secular holiday in the world now.
Have you read ‘Silent Spring’ yet? Please do if you haven’t. (It’s also worth a re-read.) This brilliant expose by activist Rachel Carlson was part of the genesis of Earth Day back in the 1960s.
Read below for this great idea for a celebration to honor and thank Mother Earth for all her blessings.
An Earth Dinner, where all gather around for a feast of local, seasonal and organic foods and engage in conversation about food, farming, and our kinship with the Earth sounds like heaven to me.

We’re going to have a husband/wife Earth Dinner tomorrow; fresh greens, whole grains, veggies, and healthy sweets. But I’m planning to host another one this summer, this time for a larger crowd.
Bless you, Mother Earth, and thank you for your protection and love.
