Chevron, Unist’ot’en and Fracking

Bealtaine Cottage 004

This morning, as it rained, I wept…

I had been watching a short video made by the Unist’ot’en people in Canada.

(I have posted a link to this below.)

I wept as I listened to the dignified language of truth, simple and eloquent.

I wept as I listened to the words of the Chevron representative, disconnected from the beauty, abundance and joy of Mother Earth.

I gasped in disbelief as the Chevron men offered plastic bottles of water to the dignified Unist’ot’en people.

Chevron attempted to enter unceded Unist’ot’en territory with a gift of bottled water and tobacco, seeking to conduct work for their Pacific Trail Pipelines hydraulically fractured gas line.

We are now living through the greatest race to destroy Mother Earth that the human race has ever witnessed…by the few, for the few and all for money that cannot ever return her to health!

It is a rare day that witnesses my tears.

I cannot believe the Ecocide taking place in the name of economic growth.

We need to listen to the voice of Mother Earth, for she speaks through those closest to her.

Please share this video far and wide.

We Have Governments

Sustainable growing at bealtainecottage.com 002

We have governments grown into monsters, so disconnected from the will of the people, that they have to control the mainstream media.

We have governments wanting us to spend away our own future and that of our children…consume, consume, consume!

We have governments leading us into wars that have nothing to do with us!

We have governments that no longer represent our hopes and dreams!

Well, anyone who regularly connects to this website knows better…we are individuals with so very much common ground, more than any political party, for we care about our Earth, our community, each other!

The people are sovereign…maybe it’s time to relay that fact to government!

Abundance in the Edible Gardens Today.

Cloud and rain, interspersed with brilliant sunshine as the gardens move into their total abundance period as we approach midsummer.

A cold wind is blowing from the East, but the edible gardens are well sheltered with the warm micro-climate protected by the abundance of growth in the trees, hedging and shrubs.

These are the plants near my desk inside the cottage, on a north-facing window ledge.

I’m heading outside to embrace the morning, armed with tea and camera, followed by two cats…Jack and Flo have already been out for their walk!

Looking back at the cottage before I move through the Laurel Arch and into the Edible Gardens.

I love the colours on the Purple Beech as the leaves collide with the Rosa Rugosa, Sedge and vibrant, lime-green Crocosmia Montbretia!

Willow archways continue to strengthen as the new growth develops.

There are masses of Blackcurrants and Jostaberries growing all around the Willow…appearing to enjoy the company.

Both tolerate shade and damp, in fact, thriving on it!

And then the sun explodes onto the gardens, making everything appear in glorious technicolour!

Lush and abundant, Nature puts forth her expression of sheer joy.

Birds sing and Bees buzz.

No Monsanto here, or Dow or any other enemies of Nature…they are banished!

Apples and soft fruits are plentiful, as they were before the invention of odious chemicals.

No sprays or any other form of ecocide.

Nature is well able to look after herself, for at Bealtaine Cottage, she is officially off the critical list and life support machine that is corporate greed!

Bees find their way from flower to flower in the permaculture gardens of Bealtaine Cottage.

Archways of roses that have cost nothing more than encouragement of a slip from a rose.

And paths of wild flowers and herbs that lead one towards the deepest and most intimate recesses of Nature…
