"Cultivate your life - you are what you grow -
inch by inch, row by row"
I'm a wife, mom, long-time organic gardener and since 2009, an organic farmer, Registered Dietitian (RD), author of the book A Dietitian's Cancer Story and former website CancerRD.com. In between all that and more, I am a multiple-time cancer survivor and a survivor from being hit by a car in 2016 resulting in multiple injuries and a traumatic brain injury as well.
I began this blog in June 2007 to share a wider scope of my thoughts about life as a cancer survivor, food and nutrition, growing food, recipes, our environment, and the urgent need for developing food systems that promote health not disease, ecological sustainability, and social justice.
Due to the long recovery from the auto accident and my brain injury in 2016, we are no longer actively farming our 15 acres on a large scale. However, our farm's updates can be followed on our farm website, Facebook, and Instagram where we frequently use the following hashtags #wefarmforbirds, #healthstartshere, #healthyfoodsystems, #healthyecosystems, #fridaysforfuture, #reverseclimatecrisis, #noplanetB. You can see that we are still in the game, even if on a much smaller scale.
A Favorite Poem
Best of any song
is bird song
in the quiet, but first
you must have the quiet.
~ Wendell Berry
A Favorite Quote
"I hope you love birds, too.
It is economical.
It saves going to heaven."

Welcome to Diana Dyer's new blog!
I suppose I should have started my blog with a welcome instead of starting by telling you why I was beginning this new venture. So, WELCOME! I hope you enjoy your visit and share a comment. Diana
