Urban farming. YES. I stopped by a "backyard farm" after my shoot yesterday. I'm so inspired by these people! I want to do this! My family and I have an incredible garden that my brother planted a few years ago, but it's not enough to feed the community and that is what I want to do. Not only are these people providing the community with fresh pesticide free produce, but they are CONNECTING with their community in the process. Neighbors, friends, local farmers all contribute to this one urban farm. Fresh produce, local honey, sprouted nuts, citrus and eggs from chickens living in their backyard just came home with me. I'm. So. Excited.
Thank you thank you thank you @yahoostyle for a great shoot today! That was some pretty incredible wardrobe I must say! Can't wait to see it!
Help us find her! Last seen in NYC midtown/east village. She belongs to a friend! RT please!!!
Just finished watching a profoundly moving documentary on animal abuse called Give Me Shelter. This particular film is so impactful and so educational as it tackles almost every category of animal issues/abuse: from puppy mills to elephant poaching, skinning Tigers to Circus', testing on chimpanzees to eating horses. It uncovers the truth behind where fur comes from and the killing of almost 90% of our sharks for their fins. YES it's uncomfortable. YES it made me cry. YES it's excruciatingly painful. But how can we create awareness and inspire change without information? How can we push for new legislation without knowledge? We must be informed, we must stare these ugly truths in the face so we can recognize the need for our collective voice to finally be heard. That includes you guys! I am so livid, so distraught so outraged by what I've just seen. I thought I was relatively knowledgable about what was going on behind the scenes of this 10 billion dollar industry - an industry that promotes the most vial of human behavior - but this doc just proved to me that I am far less informed than I realized. Please, if you have a heart, watch this film. But more importantly, use this film as a reference next time you’re thinking about buying a puppy from a pet store, or a piece of ivory for your coffee table. The next time you go to buy something with fur, or ingest a product that was initially tested on animals, DO YOUR HOMEWORK first! If you can stomach the reality of its origin, then your heart is far more durable than a human being’s should be.
