Lughnassadh Blessings!

Our hands will work for peace and justice
Our hands will work to heal the land

Gather ’round the harvest table

Let us feast and bless the land.

Lughnassadh (often pronounced “LOO-nahs-ah”) or the Anglo-Saxon “Lammas,” is one of the Greater Sabbats and honors the First Harvest. In agricultural traditions throughout the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the start of the harvest cycle, when grains and corn are the first to ripen.

But today, I think it is a splendid time to raise your awareness about the food you eat. Take action to support your local farmers and sustainable agriculture. Whether you live in an urban location or out in the suburbs, or even in rural areas, get to know the food on your table — where it comes from and those whose labor put it there.

If the film Food, Inc. is showing in your town, go see it. While challenging, it is not depressing. Yes, I know we’re all on overload, with environmental crisis fatigue threatening. But things are not hopeless. You owe it to your family and yourself to educate yourself. Learn the facts and, in the name of the Harvest Gods, demand better.

May your rites be joyful, healthful, and overflowing with Earth’s rich bounty.
May you never hunger. May you never thirst.

Blessed be!

    Today IS a great day to reflect upon the food we eat – and the beautiful Earth who gives to us in such wild abandon, in such wild abundance, in such wild beauty. To reflect on such creativity and generosity brings tears of joy and gratitude to my eyes.

    Happy Lammas!
