This week’s journal entry is a much welcome antidote to Black Friday sales as flower farmer and florist Milli Proust talks about how ideas of conscious consumption inspired her to start growing her own. Thoughtfully describing slowing down and becoming more in touch with the seasons she expands upon the practice of seed saving, which she now sells in exquisitely illustrated packaging. We think seeds are the most wonderful gifts, like little packets of hope, signifying faith in the future. It’s hard not to think about shopping today so why not shop small and support local independent businesses like Milli’s when Christmas shopping this weekend.
