December 9 – Listo (Resourcefulness)

How resourceful were you in 2011? What new ways could you incorporate resourcefulness into 2012?

“What you seek, exists within you. Every resource you need is available to you.” ~Marcia Wieder

For us, resourceful meant using what we already had around the house or in our community as well as trying to create an environment that used less resources...We...

Made cheese
Roasted our own coffee
Milked an almond
Baked homemade crackers
Used the public library
Created a compost pile
Watered with a rain barrel
Lived with one car (and five bikes)
Built a veggie garden...

We pooled food resources with friends and had potluck dinners, we pooled brain resources with friends and developed workshops...

In 2012 we'll be moving to a new city and while resources may seem scarce when relocating, having friends and colleagues offer up their resources means a collaborative effort to help us settle in a new space.
