Potomac Conservancy's "Growing  Native Program," where people fill and drop off bags with acorns, black  walnuts and other native tree seeds that the Potomac Conservancy gives to Maryland and Virginia state foresters for planting next spring. This is a great opportunity for school, church/synagogue groups to participate as well as for individuals.

There are specific "drop off" places for the seeds. One of them is at
(C&O) Lockhouse 8 Education Center which is located on the Clara Barton Parkway just off the Beltway. People may pick up bags or drop off bags on the lockhouse's back porch. This is a massive program conducted throughout the Potomac Watershed.  Please note that no seeds should be collected on National Park land.

Earthkeeper's Call
This is dedicated to our Earth Mother, Sky Father, and
their Beloved EarthKeeper - John Armbruster (1949-2005)
Visit John's website:
Hearing about the disappearance of the honeybees, I prayed for many days and was awakened at sunrise one morning with this message from Our Earth Mother. Since May there has been much media about the flight/plight of the bees. I believe that the bees are awakening in us the need to take action. The Autumn Equinox vision was seeded on May lst., the Global Love Day (Check out the Wesak Full Moon and Celtic Beltane 2007. It is important for groups to come together with focus and intention throughout 2007, culminating on the Autumn Equinox. Please check out for a July 17th, 2007 Global event and Please email me with other Global Activations and their locations throughout 2007, as well as Autumn Equinox events and any insights you receive. I will post further thoughts here. If you are interested in assisting in the Autumn Equinox ceremony in Avebury, England I am offering a 10-day Pilgrimage. As this event is so important, I am offering this pilgrimage at a low rate in the hopes that people will attend. For more information go to the Glastonbury Pilgrimage page.
Here is the message from Our Earth Mother
Our Earth Mother is calling all Earthkeepers and Lightworkers
Bee Here Now - Gather together as the Flower of Life
in Sacred Union, Ritual and Ceremony
Autumn Equinox - September 23, 2007 - 12 :00 noon any time zone

Wherever you are on Planet Earth

To Honor, in Gratitude and Thankfulness Mother Nature
for Everything; the Birds, the Bees,
the Flowers and the Trees, the Four-Leggeds,
the Crops, the Children, the Waters and the Seas

Now is a critical time on our Beloved and Beautiful Planet Earth.
We are being asked to come together to activate the Flower of Life repairing the 12 strand DNA and to birth a new frequency and paradigm, which supports a healthy life-sustaining world based on health, harmony, integrity, freedom, peace, love and plenty for all. There is all the knowledge, the means and the technologies to create this Heaven on Earth right now.
It is our birthright.

We Must Invoke this!

Autumnn Equinox is the time of Harvest and Balance.
Heaven with Earth, Divine Masculine with the Divine Feminine. The Earth Mother with the Sky Father and We the Children. When we come together as One Love, Heart, and Mind with Intention and Focus, all of Nature & Super Nature responds to this and we have the power to create a paradigm shift.

Bees are the symbol of Friendship, Sweetness & the Life of the Goddess. Honeybees are the oldest social insects. They have survived for millions of years, now more than 50% of the Honeybee population have died. We must do something now.
Beelief is the key to turn this around.
We ask for your love and prayers of appreciation now.
We will be creating a human flower of life pattern in Avebury Stone Circle. All are welcome !
In the UK: Our Glastonbury HeartStar Circle will be in Avebury Stone Circle to guide this Autumn Equinox Ritual on Sunday, September 23, 2007 at 9 am. If you would like to participate we ask that you contact us and be available to meet in Avebury or Glastonbury the day before Friday, September 22, 2007 at 2 PM. This is so we will all be of One Heart and One Mind during the ceremony and ritual for the maximum benefit.
