In Love with the Earth Calendar

In Love with Earth

Nov 26, 2017


Every year for the last 8 years, Leslie Curchack has published a calendar of her photographs and donated the proceeds to Daily Acts, a nonprofit sustainability group started by Trathen Heckman 17 years ago. The whole point of Daily Acts is to be conscious of the impact we have on our planet and on the lives of others. By living consciously and acting in accordance with the principles of supporting a sustainable life, every day we contribute to the health and well-being of everyone and our home.

Daily Acts has been responsible for amazing work across our county....from water catchment systems to demonstration gardens and sheet mulching projects on public and private lands. Volunteers spend hours and hours turning once-useless land into fertile soil that grows food and sustains lives. If you want to learn more about their work, visit their website at, and be sure to read Kellen Watson’sGarden Delightscolumn in the monthly Gazette. We list Daily Acts workshops in our calendars as well because what they do is in concert with what we and support participation in our community. 

The annual Daily Acts Ripple the World Breakfast that raises money to sustain the organization was delayed because of The Fire. It has now been rescheduled for November 30th at the Santa Rosa Vets Building, 1351 Maple Ave., Santa Rosa starting at 8:30 am. It’s very inspiring and gives one hope that positive actions are making positive progress.

The 2018 In Love With Earth calendars offer beauty and meaningful content to grace your daily life and inspire you to love our miraculous planet every day of the year. They can be purchased at the Daily Acts breakfast and on Leslie’s website, or send her an email: They are wonderful gifts.

As Leslie says... Stay close to nature, take heart and be well.
