MessageHi Joan!
I am almost finished with the new book and find myself wondering how your SPRING is going so far. I love your writing and am hoping the flooding has stopped for you. I have 23 more SPRINGS left for myself and treasure every one. Thanks for the great read. As I write I am watching a mama hummingbird tend to her nest!

Messagehi joan

got your book from the local library (liberry as my kids and I say)
love your passion
my yard has almost no grass. I pulled my sweet man to us and he has changed the feel to one of covered beds, greenhouses, joy.

tonight, late as it is , i am canning squash soup. pressure canners rock. your story makes me laugh and cry. thank you. in cowichan Bay, BC, Canada, there is a garden feeding a host of folk, including two smalls (10 and 12) and two olders (50 and 60) and a swack of folk who come to buy greens.

MessageJoan, This Organic Life changed my whole view on food. I think about you on almost every grocery trip and wonder...where did that strawberry come from?! More importantly your love of parsnips and your sauteed parsnip recipe fueled my desire to grow this fantastic vegetable which resulted in some surprising results. As a result I dedicated my first blog post to you. Thanks again for teaching me to think about where my food comes from and to know that my battles with garden varmints could always be worse! Thanks, -K

MessageJoan, I just found you on Green 960 waking up with my ear-bud radio, we are kindred spirits.

[The interview almost never mentioned your name or website, but I found you.]

I wish to make vidcasts of many similar subjects. I feel the "new media" is via video casts, even podcasts; but video seems to attract more interest for the visual mind in all of us. I want to get many messages to the mass audience of "seekers" about medicine, diet, health, organics, note investments that is "quality" and highly efficient from a learning perspective. I know the basics, but not good on the technicals of compression, streaming, and media alternatives (CD or web)...etc. I have camera, small studio, but need good resource that would guide me, but not cost me a lot of money, in the process. Do you have any contact?

MessageHello Joan-
You have inspired me since -- forever it seems sometimes -- then as I set here typing in you guest book and look up at my snow covered backyard/garden I realize you inspire me anew each spring!
Thank you for so much inspiration!

MessageHi, Joan,

I read your book "This Organic Life," and thought, "Who is this cranky lady? And why do I love her so much?" Then I found your book, "Growing, Older," and I again thought, "Why is Joan so crabby, and I why do I love her so much?" And I think the reason that I love you so much is that I am cranky and crabby just like you, for many of the same reasons -- namely, that I'm tired of seeing humanity make so many boneheaded moves, including constantly accepting the yoke of "our corporate masters." I am converting my suburban yard in Oakland, CA into a micro-farm, and you are one of the inspirations. Thanks, and stay crabby!

MessageGreetings Joan, I just read an article in the Toledo Blade about you. How encouraging. The Local Organic Food movement is growing! Raising my children 20 plus years ago I grew organic, raised chickens and goats, and bought our food from a buying club (see United Natural Foods-UNFI, for a buying club near you)enabling me to feed my children on a very limited income. Even today I find there is no reason to eat the broad range of "foods" that are out there. I grew up on beans and rice. Make that organic, add some organic bread, a glass of grass fed raw milk, what more do you need? Eating has become a peer presure event. You're included if you eat like everyone else. It's extremely hard to stand alone and eat well. Eating organic does not have to be expensive. That is a falacy. You can eat organic very inexpensivly. Blessings to all, JoAnne
