Starting a garden with the 5th graders at the kids’ school. I don’t know much about gardening but I know it’ll be fun and the kids’ will learn a ton!
My volunteering duties cranked up full blast this year and it is all culminating in this garden project. I’m so proud of the work I have done this year for the GATE program in the face of more and more budget cuts. GATE has increased its value so much this year since I took over as a lead parent volunteer. Truly a testament to the power of parents in public education.

An Ode To Mother Earth
I’ve always been a tree hugger. Directly because they are Nigerian, mine have always been “waste-not-EVER” parents. So even if they never admit it, it’s in my blood. I do my best to support local farmers and green companies. When I grow up, I’ll be an investor in green and sustainable technology. The status quo believes that such investments require significant capital. I believe the most disruption in sustainability will come with a relatively smaller price tag. It is the way of an already hyper-inflated developed world. So-called developing economies operate at much more realistic and less cost prohibitive realities. Non-Western countries have this as an advantage. The reward of green investments is unbelievably lasting good impact on Earth and its future generations.
That is my dream. In the meantime, I save the best ideas and innovations that cause me to ponder, think, reflect and create as musings of faith. ENJOY!
When my good friend called for posts to reflect on climate change, I knew I would do something a little bit different. I wanted to honor the planet. It inspires me. I am in awe of nature. Its beauty can literally make you stop what you are doing and just ponder its awesomeness. It helps that I live in one of the most beautiful cities in world. So I decided to honor the awesomeness that is and comes from the one thing that makes all of us the same - our planet.
Happy Birthday Manimoo!
9 years ago I entered motherhood and I thank you for that. While others endure Hurricane Irene, God gives you this perfect day :)
Green + Architecture. At its finest.
No, this isn’t the work of some gigantic bird. The living art you see before you was actually done by man - more specifically, artist and branchbender extraordinaire Patrick Dougherty. Crafting human-sized nest houses made by actually weaving growing trees into the shapes of houses, cocoons, pagodas, huts, giant water pitchers and even people, Dougherty has traveled the world with his truly extraordinary sculptures.
