Monday Inspirations

Happy Monday folks!  And it is indeed a happy one this week.  The weather is gorgeous, spring is almost officially here, and for once we can start the week off with some good news.  Last Friday, at the Natural Products Expo West, Whole Foods announced that all products on its shelves must be labeled if they contain GMOs by 2018.  Hoorah for taking such a huge leap forward!  Whole Foods is not only the first grocery store chain to carry over 3,000 Non-GMO Project verified products, but now they’re the first to demand labeling.  Now if only they’d put one closer to Salisbury…

To celebrate, I want to share this awesome video from TED with you.  (Thanks to Allie for sharing it with me!!)  See how one man from LA got tired of “driving 45 minutes round trip to get an apple that wasn’t impregnanted with pesticides” and planted a “food forest” for his neighborhood.  As if that isn’t fabulous enough, Ron Finley also invented some of my new favorite terms, including: “ecolutionary” and “gansta gardener.”
