This edition includes another excerpt from Amma’s Man and Nature; an interactive workshop series where we can learn to grow vegetables alongside the instructors; how chickens helped rescue a devotee from depression; an update from the Southern California Embracing The Trees effort; and an interview with the baker of Nature Cakes.

Spring marches on towards summer! It's time to plant, if you haven't done so already. As crazy as the world gets, there is always a choice to be happy. Amma says:

Whether we laugh or cry, the days are anyway going to pass by. So why not choose to laugh?

GreenFriends strives to communicate the importance of treating Nature with respect and gratitude. We invite each of you Green Friends to share your ideas and experiences with your own gardening efforts as well as experiences with nature.

Please send your stories, comments and feedback to info@greenfriendsna.org
