How to Help Out
The main way we want people to help us out is to read our content mindfully, and consider what we are trying to achieve in our lives - walk lightly on this planet, and work with others to do the same as best possible. Most of the content on this site is geared toward that end. Our goal is to show by model how it is possible to live in a fashion that is friendly to the planet we call home, but still have a good time and enjoy life to the fullest. We're not perfect by a long shot, but we do try each day to be just a little bit better than the day before. And we're always open to input on how to do better.
If you feel you want to contribute in a more concrete manner, then of course the most immediate way to do that is to follow some of the adverts that you see in a few places on the screen, but of course only if it is something that you may find interesting. There is also a donation program that we have in place. We don't want your money, but we do provide you the opportunity to show your appreciation of our work by helping feed us.
We've arranged with our CSA Saffire Farms to take donations to our weekly basket of fresh organic vegetables. This way, you can both show your appreciation directly, and support a local organic farmer, and support the CSA concept of knowing the people who grow your food. Saffire will take both cheque the old fashioned way, and Interac Email money transfer if your bank offers this service. A public ledger of all donations will be created upon receipt of the first one, and a link to it will be added to this page.
If we get more donations than what our basket costs, we will find needy families in our neighbourhood and donate a basket to them, and so on feeding as many families as donations permit.
