Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

Guest article by Mary Lee Plumb-Mentjes

Lifeways Week in England, A Heartwarming Experience for All Ages

"There is a Lifeways Week held each year in midsummer at Emerson College in Forest Row, England.  I had heard that that this event really succeeds in keeping all family members engaged, and this past summer I went to see how it was staged." 

 

In America the word, “Lifeways,” is associated primarily with providing care for the child between infancy and three years of age, when it is not feasible for the very young child to be at home with a parent during the day.  In England the emphasis of Lifeways is the encouragement of individuals all ages from the young child to teenagers, from young and old single adults, to parents and  grandparents, to join together in the celebration of Life.

Winter is just around the corner and root vegetables flourish in chilly months, growing safely nestled in underground soil, away from the elements that are blustering by upstairs. They're also packed with vitamins, which we need more than ever during the tough turn of the season.

Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world's most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats.
