I saw A Tribe Called Red perform in the Yukon and they were amazing!
Go get their free album, and educate yourself about TRUE Canadian/American history.

Took a walk around town and I got some Echinacea (Purple Cone Flower), Columbines and Cosmo seeds by dead-heading plants in my neighborhood.
My Nonna also preserves tomatoes for sauce all year round. When she took Basil from our gardens, I shook out the stalks to get seeds for next year’s plants.
Collecting seeds for next year’s plants is so easy. I’ve got myself a binder with all the seeds in different baggies labeled with the year, what it is and where I got them from. Here I am, starting my own seed library!
PRETTY FRIGGING AWESOME.
So you discovered this because you wanted to know what Agenda Resurrected is
… or maybe you didn’t.
What you REALLY WANT must be to learn how to make cheap, easy and efficient notepads that give paper an extra life before being sent to a recycling centre.
First thing’s first: Do you have a bunch of scrap paper?
Note: I thought I’d try something new by using the Gallery function.
If you find it difficult/annoying/strange to read, let me know in the comments!
~~ I’m also curious to hear what you had for breakfast.
On Saturday, AUGUST 8 the second ever SWAP/DROP will be taking over the southwest side of Bellevue Park!! (Kensington Market, fyi) It runs from 11:30am -6 :30pm We will have an ArtSpace set up for people of all ages to make crafts, hang out and get creative in whatever way you’d like plus of course, the Swap/Drop :]
OFFICIAL GROUP: SWAP/DROP (join to stay updated or volunteer for the next one) ++Share this event with your friends!
We had such a great time hearing your stories, painting pinecones and doing scavenger hunts with you! A big thanks to everyone who was so supportive of this idea. I hope to see you back again :] Keep in mind, the Swap/Drop wasn’t only created to have free fun and get free stuff. I created this to inspire others to think differently about unnecessary consumerism and the role we play in waste management. If we buy less, share more & think differently about what is considered junk, we can limit lots of waste ending up in the dump and make cool art/furniture at the same time. Who knows, maybe the best things in life really are free.
This Saturday I will be hosting an event called the SWAP/DROP where you can:
@ BELLEVUE PARK (southwest side)
OFFICIAL 100in1dayTO: SWAP/DROP (more info)
Essentially I am trying to get the community together so we can think differently about consumerism and the role we play in waste management.
Buy less, share more & think differently about what trash means to YOU.
No time to make a sign. No time to be a bee!
But I still marched. I made a difference. One voice among thousands. We shouted
“HEY, HEY! HO, HO! GMOS HAVE GOT TO GO!”
We let our city know what we want:
& when we wanted it

It was my first time going to MAMTO, yet it felt so natural to me.
All morning I stared at my breakfast, mulling over my food choices. Where they organic? No. Where did they come from? I don’t even want to think about it.
How many GMOs are snuck into the food I eat everyday?
I’ll admit it, I know about all the awful pesticides killing our lovely pollinators.
I try to buy local, farm-friendly and organic when I can, but I am unemployed and trying to get to university.
It’s hard to vote with your money when you don’t have any!

Attending events like March Against Monsanto, going to local farmers markets and supporting programs such as Food Share, FarmTOFork, or the Toronto GMO Coalition can still make a difference — even if you can’t afford to buy 100% organic and fair trade products.
Volunteering is a free way to show your support.
*PRO TIP* sometimes you get free stuff!
At the end of the march, I got to hear a few bands play in Christie Pits along with many speakers. I wish I remembered their names. These are real people making change! Some sacrificed their jobs standing up for what they believe in.
It blew me away that one girl (16) started advocating for labeling GMOs when she was just 11 years old!
If she can do it, we all can.
Step up and fight for a world we are proud to be a part of.
