Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas) a Hauoli Makahiki Hou! (& Happy New Year!)

Aloha All,  Another year has zipped by!  I hope it has been a great year for you and your garden or farm.  For me, a big thing was getting my Beyond Organic book published in printed form.  It has been well received and is being sold in over 20 locations around the Big Island.  There are more exciting happenings in the Beyond Organic world that are in the works!  I will roll them out as they come to fruition over this coming year.  Hint: One is an online teaching and support program to help everyone achieve the goal of growing the most delicious and healing food ever.  If you aren’t already a subscriber to this blog, just sign up in the box on the right to stay in the loop with the latest happenings.

About the gorgeous photo:  This glass house scene was borrowed from the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh.  The conservatory was built by Henry Phipps in 1893 as a gift to Pittsburgh.  A great gift that keeps on giving!  We are fortunate in Hawaii because Poinsettias love to grow outdoors here, sometimes creating tall “hedges” of brilliant red around Christmas time.

I hope you have a wonderful, colorful Holiday Season and all your Dreams come True in the New Year!    Jana
