Jumping in kind of late but here's my intro
My name is Karin. I am 37 and originally from Europe (where being green seems to be a whole lot easier than here in Texas.)
I grew up on a little farm in Bavaria and we've always composted, collected rainwater, recycled, brought our own shopping baskets, etc.
It was a little weird when I first moved here 17 years ago -before everybody had reusable shopping bags- because the stores always seemed to think I was a potential shoplifter bringing in bags, etc. LOL
Anyway. Now I live on a little farm again. I just love it. Animals, nature, etc.
We have horses, goats, chickens, etc.
I have 2 kids both born at home on the farm (midwives), cloth daipered, etc.
We use a lot of cloth (diapers, pads, wipes, etc.)
Over time I have really grown to appreciate native plants and that's sort of my passion right now. Especially with us having horses it has made me really aware how little native grassland is left and has been replaced with monoculture (coastal bermuda grass).
What I am working on... Too much time on the computer. I need to turn that thing off more often...
