150 Hour Zero Waste Challenge

Can you do a 150 hour Zero Waste Challenge for Canada’s 150 Birthday?

Canada 150 Celebration Challenge

Can you do a 150 hour Zero Waste Challenge for Canada’s 150 Birthday?

In other words for 150 hours can you not use a trash can at all.  Plan your groceries without any trash to throw away – recycle or compost everything not eaten.  Plan your shopping for minimisation.  Try to purchase those items which have been re-cycled or re-purposed.  Ensure any and all packaging can be re-cycled.  What else can you do for your lifestyle?  What revelations will you become aware of as you endeavour to become “Waste Free”?

“Anticipate Success. Let us heal the naked scars in the earth and restore her green mantle. Let us set our Earth family in order.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker

If you succeed with your trash can lid taped shut for 150 hours, maybe you can try 150 days!!!  Draw your attention to 150 hours, what are your consumer habits that support waste, and which demand choices tdo you make which are “Waste Free”?

150 hours:  Monday at 6:00 a.m.  to Sunday at 12:00 noon.

If you want to try 150 days “Waste Free” then today is June 10, 2017 so that means that 150 days from today would be November 7, 2017.   150 Days From Now

So there it is for the 150th Anniversary of Canada, take the “Waste Free” challenge.

Bea Johnson suggests these steps to be successful:

1. Refuse
2. Reduce
3. Reuse
4. Recycle
5. Rot

What does Johnson know about Zero Waste?  Johnson’s family of four lived an entire year, and their waste for the entire month fit into a one quart canning jar.

What will be your reward for completing the challenge?

You will conserve Canada’s resources, and minimize pollution.

Zero Waste builds community with surplus consumer goods donated to food banks, second hand clothing stores, shelters.  Composting at community gardens build social networking and support

Zero Waste creates new jobs, as products are repaired, recycled and re-furbished.

Zero Waste saves money as consumers demand less packaging, and more serviceable, and durable products.  Consumer demand for products when can be recycled creates a circular economy.

Zero Waste creates a healthier lifestyle and economy.  Eating organic, eating locally so food does not have to be transported, eating without waste, modifies the diet to healthy choices.

Zero Waste protects the environment, preserving resources and biospheres for future generations.

“The world’s problem, is not a population explosion, but animal explosion. We’ve got to decide whether we are going to feed animals or humans. To feed animals is a roundabout way of getting food. It takes 18 times more land to feed people on beef than on vegetables, nuts fruits and grains.” Richard St. Barbe Baker.

“We feel that our greatest victory remains to be won when man will realize his oneness with the trees, the creatures and with all living things, not ours to destroy, but to be handed on for the enjoyment of future generations.” – Richard St. Barbe Baker.

Adrift with the Meadowlark

It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly. —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” —Lady Bird Johnson

Cast adrift of the hustle and bustle of the city lights. Relax and meander in the wilderness of the forest.

The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved. Richard Rogers

It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly. —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Both Deepak Chopra and Richard St. Barbe Baker agree, in this.  Immerse yourself in the forest, set yourself adrift, even if just for twenty minutes each day, refresh yourself, sing with the Meadowlards.  “With spirit we are all children of the cosmos; Without it we are orphaned and adrift.” Deepak Chopra  “Man must resuscitate his planet with trees, his heart with faith.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker

“The science of forestry arose from the recognition of a universal need. It embodies the spirit of service to mankind in attempting to provide a means of supplying forever a necessity of life and, in addition, ministering to man’s aesthetic tastes and recreational interests. Besides, the spiritual side of human nature needs the refreshing inspiration which comes from trees and woodlands. If a nations saves its trees, the trees will save the nation. And nations as well as tribes may be brought together in this great movement, based on the ideal of beautifying the world by the cultivation of one of God’s loveliest creatures – the tree.” ~ Richard St. Barbe Baker.

Afforestation Workshop

“When the trees go, the rain goes, the climate deteriorates, the water table sinks, the land erodes and desert conditions soon appear” ~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Afforestation Workshop May 25, 2017 at 1:30
Afforestation Workshop May 25, 2017 at 1:30

“What do the forests bear? Soil, water and pure air–soil, water and pure air are the basis of life; this is the slogan of the Chipko (Hug to the Trees) women in India–those who work with Sunderlal Bahuguna to save the forests of the Himalayas. Sunderlal is my Guru”.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

The Wild About Saskatoon 2017 NatureCity Festival theme this year is ‘We are water: explore our prairie waterscape.’ The festival takes place with a wide assortment of events May 23-28, 2017. The Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area joins the festivities Thursday afternoon May 25, 2017 between 1:30 and 3:15.  Situated in a low lying area classified as a “wetlands”, the afforestation workshop  participants will be immersed in the forest and woodlands in the southwest sector of Saskatoon.  The workshop was compiled from the books and teachings of Dr. Richard St. Barbe Baker,  L.L.D., O.B.E., humanitarian, author, silviculturist and forester.  In this way we embrace the teachings of this Baba Wya Miti ~ loving Father of Trees.

Omitakoyasin. The Omitakoyasin are the spirits of all of humanity’s ancestors, since always and for always. “We are all related.” It is important to realize that every single person who enters into our lives, from the passing stranger to those nearest and dearest to us, is present because we dreamed them here. We made a mutual agreement with each of them to connect in this time and space for the purpose of enriching and empowering our individual and collective evolution.~Lynette Hopkin

Arrive at the parking lot of the South West off leash dog park for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday May 25, 2017 should you wish to partake in this workshop activities.  Directions and map are included below.  Though the meeting place will be the SW off leash recreation area parking lot, the Afforestation Workshop will take place in the forest east of the dog park, and not in the dog park itself.

“The trees and vegetation, which cover the land surface of the Earth and delight the eye, are performing vital tasks incumbent upon the vegetable world in nature. Its presence is essential to earth as an organism. It is the first condition of all life; it is the “Skin” of the earth, for without it there can be no water and, therefore, no life.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Note 

There will be no actual planting or “afforestation of trees” at the location of this workshop, this afforestation workshop is so named as it takes place within an “afforestation area” – the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area.

Shinrin-yoku Forest Bathing

World Healing Day

This World Healing Day, April 29, try Shinrin-yoku Forest Bathing, it is an amazing health activity.  Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area, lay your hands on your favourite tree.  Pass the word on, and invite the world to experience; Shinrin-yoku Forest Bathing

We stand in awe and wonder at the beauty of a single tree. Tall and graceful it stands, yet robust and sinewy with spreading arms decked with foliage that changes through the seasons, hour by hour, moment by moment as shadows pass or sunshine dapples the leaves. How much more deeply are we moved as we begin to appreciate the combined operations of the assembly of trees we call a forest.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Forest-bathing describes the practice of taking a short, leisurely visit to a forest for health benefits. The practice originated in Japan where it is called shinrin-yoku. A forest bathing trip involves visiting a forest for relaxation and recreation while breathing in volatile substances, called phytoncides (wood essential oils), which are antimicrobial volatile organic compounds derived from trees, such as α-Pinene and limonene. Incorporating forest bathing trips into a good lifestyle was first proposed in 1982 by the Forest Agency of Japan. It has now become a recognized relaxation and/or stress management activity in Japan. According to Cassandra Szlaraski, ” the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku,  translates to “taking in the forest atmosphere.””

“Soon I was completely isolated in the luxuriant, tangled growth of ferns which were well above my head. In my infant mind I seemed to have entered a fairyland of my dreams.

“I wandered on as in a dream, all sense of time and space lost …

“I became intoxicated with the beauty all around me, immersed in the joyousness and exultation of feeling part of it all.

“I had entered the temple of the wood. I sank to the ground in a state of ecstasy; everything was intensely vivid – the call of a distant cuckoo seemed just for me …

“The overpowering beauty of it all entered my very being.

“At that moment my heart brimmed over with a sense of unspeakable thankfulness which has followed me through the years since that woodland re-birth …~Richard St. BarbeBaker.

“I was in love with life: I was indeed born again, although I could not have explained what had happened to me then.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker My Life My Trees

“In Japan and Korea, forest therapy modalities are integrated into their medical system and are covered by insurance,” said Ben Page, a certified forest therapy guide who founded Shinrin Yoku Los Angeles. ” Meeri Kim, also notes that “phytoncides, which are antimicrobial organic compounds given off by plants. They argue that by breathing in the volatile substances released by the forest, people achieve relaxation… Phytoncides —are  colloquially known in forest bathing circles as “the aroma of the forest.” Quing Li, senior Assistant Professor at Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, figures that the increase in people’s natural killer (NK) cells increase due to the Phytoncides which are the essential oils from trees. α-pinene and limonene are examples of tree “perfumes” which are antimicrobial volatile organic compounds.

“For years, I’ve charged my batteries on trees.  You have to select a special tree friend.  When I came out of hospital after a serious operation, I chose a Cedar of Lebanon.  Cedar itself comes from the Arabic word meaning strength.”

“I used to do two minutes on and two minutes off, then two minutes again.  After about four minutes, your hands begin to tingle.  I wouldn’t recommend to a beginner to take more than a minute to start with.”  ~Richard St. Barbe Baker speaks of laying the palm of hands on a tree trunk.

And just as Richard St. Barbe Baker attests, so, to does Dr. Li, lay your hands on the trees, touch the trees, and open yourself to the healing. The experience is enhanced, if one absorbs the sights, sounds, colours through all the five senses as one walks slowly and meditatively through the forest. An excellent day spent forest bathing would be to wander for about four hours while walking about 5 kilometers through the woods. Forest bathing can also be done for half this time, strolling 2.5 kilometers over 2.5 hours.

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
—Robert Louis Stevenson

“A forest is a perfect example of the law of return in action. Trees give back to the earth more than they take, while building up humus, and enriching the soil by the minerals that have been carried up to the leaves in the rising sap. By nature man is
a forest dweller. He was cradled in the tropics. His food was the fruit of the trees. He possessed the secret of adaptation to his environment, so that health, gentleness, beauty and strength were enjoyed to the full. In his forest setting man was conscious of his relationship to God and of his unity with all living things.`Richard St. Barbe Baker

Let TAWAMHWE-pull together-be our motto and I pray that we may give our active support to all efforts of desert reclamation by tree planting and I pray that I may be just to the Earth below my feet, to my neighbour by my side and to the light which comes from above and within, and this wonderful world of ours may be a little more beautiful and happy for my having lived in it.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

Join us for a walk and be eligible for some give-aways. (while quantities last).

“A city street equipped to handle strangers, and to make a safety asset, in itself, our of the presence of strangers, as the streets of successful city neighborhoods always do, must have three main qualities:

First, there must be a clear demarcation between what is public space and what is private space. Public and private spaces cannot ooze into each other as they do typically in suburban settings or in projects.

Second, there must be eyes upon the street, eyes belonging to those we might call the natural proprietors of the street. The buildings on a street equipped to handle strangers and to insure the safety of both residents and strangers, must be oriented to the street. They cannot turn their backs or blank sides on it and leave it blind.

And third, the sidewalk must have users on it fairly continuously, both to add to the number of effective eyes on the street and to induce the people in buildings along the street to watch the sidewalks in sufficient numbers. Nobody enjoys sitting on a stoop or looking out a window at an empty street. Almost nobody does such a thing. Large numbers of people entertain themselves, off and on, by watching street activity.”
~Jane Jacobs

The dog is peculiarly the friend of man. ~ Richard L. Allen

The dog we have always with us; if not active in the garden or passive on the best bed, then gracing or disgracing himself in other domestic capacities. For the dog is a curious combination, wherein heredity constantly opposes culture; and therefore though your dog be a woolly dog or a smooth dog, a large dog or a small dog, a house-dog, yard-dog, hunting-dog or farm-dog, he will be ever a delight and a scandal according as he reveals the complexities of his character. Just as soon as you have decided that he is almost human, he will straightway unmistakably indicate that he is still very much dog.~Edward L Sabin

New Technology for Off Leash Dogs

Do you think you would consider this new innovation?

The following describes a new technology available which may interest dog owners who have pets that love off leash recreation areas, and your opinion would be truly appreciated. Please fill in your comments after you check out the many features offered so you can make an informed decision.

The autonomous car has gone one step further in its new technology. These driverless vehicles have traditionally been fashioned for the human experience, however the new models with further enhancements allow your pet to get themselves to the off leash recreation area without their human companion. What a boon for the human if they have just seriously been injured or are sick, they do not have to worry about their pet’s health suffering.

The pet owner just places the off leash recreation area GPS location into the car database. The sound activation technology can be set up to hear the unique bark of your pet to open the locked doors. Then your pet just hops into the car.

Equipping your dog with a special autonomous dog harness, allows the car to know that your pet is taking the car for a spin, and the automated technology allows the harness to join to the seat to fasten your pet securely to the seat like a seatbelt for a human. Any size of dog can use the car, and the car will accept more than one dog at a time, and take them all to the off leash recreation area with ease. The car knows by the harness signature and dog bark if all the furry little passengers are back in place for the return trip home.

Each car is equipped with a unique dog whistle above the hearing range of the human ear, but specifically set for your dog. Your car can be programmed to whistle for your dog after a specified length of time which you can vary day by day if needed.

The other unique feature of this autonomous dog car, as the harness once it is attached to the vehicle, activates a special leash which allows your dog to be “on leash” inside the parking lot. The leash then releases your pet safely when they get inside the off leash recreation area. You can buy the advanced feature which allows the vehicle’s GPS device to direct your dog with voice commands amid the parking lot traffic to keep your pet safe enroute to the off leash recreation area entrance.

There is a holder for a water dish beside the coffee cup holder in the car, in case your dog was out on a warm day.

As the autonomous dog car is fully equipped with radar, GPS, computer vision, odometry, laser light to detect the road, and urban surroundings, the autonomous Dog car is fully functional to take you dog on to his off leash recreation area. The dog harness also has a built in GPS unit so the car and your Iphone or Android app know exactly where your vehicle and your dog are at any time for peace of mind.

So if you are ill, injured or late home from work, your pet can drive out on his own to their favourite off leash recreation area to get the exercise they need, and drive right back home again, as the car is automatically programmed for a return trip after reaching an off leash recreation area destination. Or if your dog wishes to go for an early morning walk, or a walk while you are busy catching up with homework or work from the office, it is no problem, let your pet take the car, and you can catch up with them later.

This special autonomous Dog car has been successfully tested in many countries, and is now available in Canada. If you would like to put your dog in the driver’s seat, please check out the advantages today! Autonomous Dog cars enhance your pet’s mobility and health. It doesn’t take long to train your dog to use this amazing car at all, and full dog training instructions come with the car. There will be dog-training classes coming to a location near you in the close future.

If you think that this autonomous car for your furry best friend is for you, then check out all the features that this special and unique autonomous automobile has to offer for your dog.

So that pretty much summarizes the concept of the autonomous Dog car available at this time. Personally, I know not what to think…. Do you think you would consider such a technology? Would it be a safe investment for you and your pet? Would you try it? Is this the future of autonomous vehicles? Which feature do you appreciate the most? Did you check out all the advantages? Do you think we are ready for this or should it wait till later?

Thank you for all your added input and emails!  It was much appreciated. Have a good and wonderful day this April 1 .

Take a Walk in the Park Day March 30

On March 30, 2017 please celebrate “Take a Walk in the Park Day.” Before you head out, take a moment to plan a family activity to care for Canada’s rich biodiversity, and to increase the education and awareness of conservation, eco-systems, and Canada’s living resources.

Download a BioKit before going on your family outing at the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area. It is very fortunate that the BioKits are developed by the Biosphere, Environment Museum. These nature observation guides are designed for youth over six years old to become aware of the environment and natural treasures as you explore. the West Swale wetlands and associated riparian woodlands. Become immersed in the mysteries of nature, and take part in the activities outlined in the variety of Bio-Kits available.

“Biodiversity, or biological diversity, means the multitude of living beings, ecosystems and their interrelationships, in space and in time. It is divided into three components: genetic diversity, species diversity, and ecosystem diversity.”Source

I believe in oneness of mankind and of all living things and in the interdependence of each and all. I believe that unless we play fair to the Earth, we cannot exist physically on this planet. Unless we play fair to our neighbour, we cannot exist socially or internationally. Unless we play fair to better self, there is no individuality and no leadership. ~Richard St. Barbe Baker.
