Click here to see pictures of this phenomenal house.

This is an incredibly tiny home that is totally self-sustaining.

The Blue House is a fully off-grid self-sustainable 171 square foot micro home. The thoughtfully designed main floor includes a living space, bathroom, and full kitchen. A custom-built spiral staircase leads from the kitchen to the open loft above.

The Blue House features both wood and propane heat sources. The wall mounted wood stove provides beautiful radiant heating, while the Propane Heater allows for ease of use and automation when you’re out-of-town. The fully plumbed galley kitchen features a premium three burner propane stove, as well as a mini fridge and freezer. The home’s finished bathroom includes a composting toilet, built-in shelving, and a shower with hot water on demand. The Blue House runs on a powerful solar system, providing more than enough energy to power the dimmable LED lighting and all of your gadgets and necessities. The interior walls and ceiling have been finished with warm pine tongue and groove, while fir hardwood has been installed for flooring. The exterior of the home is protected by locally milled cedar siding.

Whether used as a guest home, cottage, or full-time residence, the Blue House truly is a tiny dream home.

Food apartheid: the root of the problem with America’s groceries | Society | The Guardian

Is systemic racism at work in our food system. Are areas of poverty the deciding factor in who gets access to good, wholesome foods?? This is a great article that introduces the concept of “Food Apartheid”

Food justice activist Karen Washington wants us to move away from the term ‘food desert’, which doesn’t take into account the systemic racism permeating America’s food system

5 Adult Coloring Books For Those New to the Phenomenon – Everup

Looking for a way to experience some calm and peace during some challenging times, I turned to an old friend, the coloring book. Growing up an only child, you gotta find some things to keep you busy. Coloring and comics, two of my go-to things.

I remember having coloring contests to see who could do the best picture. This was when you had to have quarters to play “video games”.  The hours and number of books colored as a child can be incredible. Even if a child chooses to do something other than to be the next  Crayola Picasso, we all touch the cray at some point in our lives

I forged some of my longest friendships across a dining room table with a 32 box laid out between us. When else did you learn to hang with somebody else and just be ok being there and not have to or need to say something?? I should start coloring with my wife. (Hmmm….)

Coloring is making a comeback and it is for the discerning individual(s).  Pick up a book, crayons, pencils, markers, whatever you color best with and turn back the clock to a simpler time when it was all about the color.

Come hang out in our Facebook group

Can Organic Food Save Your Life ? – Wellness Force

Josh Trent & Sean Croxton hit the SDSU campus at the San Diego Food Justice Conference 2010 in search of answers to the rising epidemic of obesity and sickness in America and the world. The corporate agribusiness would love to have you believe that they are “feeding the world” with GMO’S, pesticides and petrol chemicals, but at what cost? There has already been numerous studies linking cancer and lipid elevation towards processed and modified foods. Can organic food save your
