    Yesterday, I learned about Rainforest Alliance. It is a nonprofit that is building alliances to create a better future for people and planet. They offer a certification program for brands selling rainforest-friendly products and work alongside activists, businesses, small farmers, and forest communities to drive positive social, environmental, and economic change across forest landscapes. https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/

    Today I tried this mindfulness exercise: 3 minute breathing space and want to share it with you. It can be the perfect technique for those with busy lives and minds. The exercise is broken into three sections, one per minute, and works as follows:

    1. The first minute is spent on answering the question “how am I doing right now?” while focusing on the feelings, thoughts, and sensations that arise, and trying to give these words and phrases.

    2. The second minute is spent on keeping awareness of the breath.

    3. The last minute is used for an expansion of attention outward from the breath, feeling the ways in which your breathing affects the rest of the body.

    Today I spent some time reading about this non-profit organization called: A Growing Culture https://www.agrowingculture.org/ This non-profit is focused on advancing a culture of farmer autonomy and agroecological innovation. They do this by reframing the way the world views farmers, facilitating collective learning and catalyzing innovation through farmer-to-farmer exchange, and supporting on-the-ground efforts for farmer-led research and documentation
