Memorial Day Weekend 2013-Remembering

Remembering all the people in our families that have come before us is best done on a daily basis; however, with our busy lives I would venture to say that most of us need a reminder. Memorial Day is just such a reminder for me in that all of the male ancestors that I am aware of going back to the Civil War in my family were military men and my brother and I will be the first generation not to have been either drafted or to voluntarily enlist. I remember.

According to the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association, the principles of biodynamic farming are the spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to food production. The concept of biodynamic food production is attributed to Dr. Rudolph Steiner, an Austrian writer and philosopher; that tied together food production with ecological, social, and economic sustainability. Also found on the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association website, the concept of biodynamic food production was attributed to a series of lectures and talks that Dr. Steiner gave in June 1924. Consistent with the principles of  biodynamic food production, I bring up these bits of information to ask you to consider farms and gardens as spiritual places and that the ancestors collectively deserve our gratitude early and often because without our ancestors we would not be.

I want to take a moment to acknowledge my Grandfather, Delbert Dee Sturman, Master Sergeant U.S. Army, who from my eyes as a child, was the greatest man walking, a man among men, a Civil Servant, a Warrior, a Gardener extraordinaire. With teary eyes, I remember.
