Earth Muffin Definition : Urban Dictionary

Oliver Kellhammer called me an Earth Muffin the other day before his talk. I think I dig the definition…

"Environmentally conscience, socially aware, recycles when she can, prefers organic or natural products, and will drive out of the way to support mom and pop before large consumer corporations. She’s a modern hippy but also has a practical side. She’s cute, showers regularly, and encourages others to do the right thing without being judgmental or critical."

Though I think his defnition was gender neutral and involved people who are trying to make a difference in their communities ;-)

Come out and Community Art Garden this evening starting at 5:pm. We’ll be developing our newest plot into a 5 Senses Permaculture Garden!

UPCOMING DATES:
