    Baltimore Families for Natural Living – an msn group


    A support group of a larger National Organization. Families for Natural Living is a 501 C 3 Not-for-Profit educational organization and a community of diverse people who share the belief that we, as individuals, are responsible for our own health.

    We claim the right to choose how we care for ourselves and we believe that each of us must make informed health and natural living choices. We recognize and advocate that the health of our families, communities and planet originate with the mindful individual accepting the responsibility of these consciously made natural living choices. In empowering individuals to make these informed choices, FNL serves as a source of education and support, both for our members and for the wider community, about alternative views and methods of health and natural living. FNL also supports the efforts of natural health care practitioners through networking and increasing public awareness of the kinds of services they offer.

    Welcome to the Freecycle(TM) group for Baltimore City and Baltimore County, Maryland. If you are outside this area, please look on freecycle.org for the closest group.

    The goal of FreecycleBaltimore is to reduce waste by connecting people who want to get rid of items with others who are seeking those items.

    Whether you want to discard or acquire an item, you’ve come to the right place. Computers, furniture, clothing, magazines – no item is too big or too small, but ALL ITEMS MUST BE FREE, LEGAL, AND APPROPRIATE FOR ALL AGES.

  • 14. loisgreencity  |  May 4, 2007 at 2:48 am



    This FreecycleTM group is for anyone within the 21237 and neighboring zips who want to offer or collect free items to support the local community.

    Why Rosedale when there is a greater “Baltimore” group? Because the Baltimore Metro area is such a vast area, and that group already has over 2200 members. It is rapidly becoming overwhelming in terms of the amount of email and the fact that you have to weed out not just the things you’re not interested in, but also determine where the offered item is, and whether or not its worth the potentially long trip to get it.

    Everyone please help out your NEIGHBORS FIRST – if you join our group, and you have something to offer – how about first listing it here? Then, if it is not claimed within a few days, offer it to the greater area list(s).

    a website that presents stories of positive change in the Baltimore region. This spirit of greening, advocacy, and social justice is cultivated throughout our region by businesses, organizations, and individuals. Each one is a vibrant, kickin’, hopeful, gorgeous thread in the shimmering tapestry that is being woven every day in our community.

    The site includes articles, a social network, and discussion forums. Also, during the summer of 2008 we are developing a marketplace to connect our site visitors directly to local products and services.

    At GOforChange, we believe that everyone’s work is necessary to this great project of bringing about changes for a just, healthy, and restorative world. Our posts call attention to people, projects, and businesses that:

    * contribute to the well-being of people and the planet;

    * operate from the premise that all things are interconnected;

    * abhor waste of any sort: of people, resources, ideas, time;

    * express humility, generosity, and compassion;

    * use nature as a model and mentor;

    * seek to restore the damage that has been done; and

    * envision a world where human enterprise is good for the earth and for people.

    A young boy and his dad went out fishing one fine morning. After a few quiet hours out in the boat, the boy became curious about the world around him. He looked up at his father and asked “How do fish breath under water?” His dad thought about it for a moment, then answered “I really don’t know, son.” The boy sat quietly from another moment, then turned back to his dad and asked, “How does our boat float on the water?” Once again his dad answered, “Don’t know, son.” Pondering his thoughts again, a little while later, the boy asks “Why is the sky blue?” Again, his father answered, “Don’t know, son.” The inquiring boy, worried he was disturbing his dad, asks this time “Dad, do you mind that I’m asking you all of these questions?” “Of course not son”, replied his father, “How else are you ever going to learn anything?”
    I sometimes think that some posts and even whole web resources are much alike this story…

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks
    weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find
    a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
