This is one of the greatest ideas I've heard in the last years:

There are a few local governments across the US who thought of giving public land a better use. Check it out HERE. They thought, if we own some public land, why don't we give it a public benefit use? Why don't we create public gardens maintained by volunteers in which we can grow fruits and vegetables and let anybody partake of those foods? Homeless people can come anytime and get a fresh, healthy piece of fruit or vegetable while looking for a job, instead of having to ask for money to eat all day long. Working people can take a break from their jobs and just enjoy some fresh air while eating a just about picked apple, instead of the unhealthy and heavily processed fast food meal most Americans choose for those breaks...

I see a country changing with initiatives like this one. I see a healthier country, a more productive country. I see people spending money on important things instead of degrading ones. I see a government that cares about people instead of monetary interest, and serves people and not corporations. I see communities getting closer to each other, growing together.

There is something I didn't include on my WORD OF WISDOM post, and it is about growing your own garden and storing food. This is part of the Word of Wisdom as well, as been counseled by the prophets, but now it is under danger of being banned by the government. I want to start with a quote from President Spencer W. Kimball:

"The Lord has urged that his people save for the rainy days, prepare for the difficult times, and put away for emergencies, a year’s supply or more of bare necessities so that when comes the flood, the earthquake, the famine, the hurricane, the storms of life, our families can be sustained through the dark days. We encourage you to grow all the food that you feasibly can on your own property. Berry bushes, grapevines, fruit trees—plant them if your climate is right for their growth. Grow vegetables and eat them from your own yard. Even those residing in apartments or condominiums can generally grow a little food inpots and planters. Study the best methods of providing your own foods. Make your garden as neat and attractive as well as productive. If there are children in your home, involve them in the process with assigned responsibilities.

Thank you all for visiting my blog, and specially for making my post about the WORD OF WISDOM so popular, it's truly a pleasure for me to be able to spread the word about this amazingly Godly law.

Well, today I want to talk about the importance of learning how to use wholesome, raw, and nutritious ingredients to make amazingly tasty meals. A great source of inspiration is Janae A. Devika, a raw food and whole food chef in the Utah area and owner of CAFE JANAE. She is so concerned about health in our society that she offers these free introductory classes on how to prepare great, tasty, meals and desserts made with only raw and full of life ingredients like different kinds of nuts, raw honey, fruits, etc. Go to her website and sign up for updates on those classes and many other things she offers.
