Thank you thank you...for alllowing me to share our life here at downshifting path with you. I believe in gratitude and spreading it about......Thank you Mark for nominating me for this award.

The award is the brain child of Climate Of Our Future to commemorate blogger's efforts around the world to share their knowledge, thoughts and inspirations in making this a better, healthier, more sustainable world.

So, in keeping with the participation rules -- I, in turn, pass this Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award to the following 5 bloggers:

Frugal for life - Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things. ~Elise Boulding. Dawn shares every day, a tip to reduce consumption and live a content life in a simple, frugal way.

Path to Freedom.- the Dervaes family seek to live more enviromentally conscious, simple, agrarian and self-sufficient life by bringing about change in our daily lives - one step at a time in an urbgan setting. They hope that their journey will insprire fellow travellers who are on the path less traveled.

Our family's mission and struggle will be to continue to acquire the total package of brains, guts and knowledge necessary to become self-sufficient pioneers and better earth stewards.
"To use our hands as weapons of mass creation and to walk the path to restoration and renewal."
~ Jules Dervaes

Beansprouts - Melanie with 4 otherslive in a very small ex-council house with a very small garden on the edge of farmland. They grow some of their food on an allotment a couple of miles away. They try to be "green", whatever that means.

Down to earth Rhonda Jean lives with her husband on an acre of land which they share with two Airedale Terriers, some chooks, a cat and a worm farm. They live a simple, partially sustainable life in the foothills of a rainforest mountain range in Australia.
