IT'S GOOD NEWS MONDAY!!!



Hola Beautiful Ones!

I hope that your weekend was lovely. Mine was busy, productive, fun and wonderful. On Friday, I hung out with one of my good friends at Loca Luna. Cool spot in Atlanta. I saw that they offer Salsa lessons so I may go back just for that. On Saturday, I, my daughter, and my mother had a lovely Girls Day Out on Saturday. It was so fun! What did you do this weekend?....

I am so excited about today's "Good News Monday"! Have a couple of things to talk about.

First up:

I read in a local paper about fresh, local organic vegetables being available at Wonderland Gardens for the holidays. I can't believe that I've overlooked this place. It's not far from me at all.

Wonderland Gardens is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization committed to stewardship of the Earth through programs that actively promote organic gardening, Green education, recycling and healthy living in communion with nature.

The Wonderland Garden’s mission is to create a self-sustaining greenspace destination and community resource that connects people to nature.
The nonprofit garden is located in Decatur, Ga in the heart of what would be considered the urban community. This nonprofit garden is taking orders for collards, mustard, kale, turnips and sweet potatoes from Oaktree Farms for delivery before Nov. 24.

Proceeds benefit the School Garden Initiative which is sponsored by Wonderland Gardens and the Organization of DeKalb Educators, which is working to put gardens into local schools. (Thanks God!)

Christmas and New Year’s vegetables will also be available. For more information, check out Wonderlandsgardens.org or call 404-286-6163, ext. 1.

Not in the DeKalb, Atlanta (let alone Georgia) area check out this website, LocalHarvest.org to find local CSA’s near you. You can also read why local organic foods are looked upon as the best foods to buy here.


and secondly:

I am so excited for fellow blogger, CurlyNikki. She’ll be on the Tyra Banks Show. CurlyNikki has become the recent addition to Tyra’s website, Tyrashow.com. Representing for all us textured-hair folks. Loves it!! So happy for her! I remember when she was on the forums on Nappturality.com and NaturallyCurly.com (Well, she is still NC.com). She’s such a sweetie. Can’t wait to see her on the show. Work it out, CN! Work it out!

Make this day your best,
ChocolateOrchid
