Thanks and goodbye!

Just like things come and go in nature, so do blogs … and now the time has come for this blog to end.

For me it’s been more than three (!) great years, blogging about what’s happening on the green front in Sweden and getting wonderful response from different parts of the world.

Thank you so much everyone for reading, commenting and e-mailing! And good luck with your own green projects, whether it’s starting a compost, raising awareness in your neighbourhood or city, or changing the whole world!

For more sustainability news and analysis from this part of the planet, I can recommend the Effekt blog written my colleagues at the climate magazine Effekt. In Swedish, but you all understand it by now, don’t you? ;) (if not, there’s always the auto translater).

    It is pretty suddenly and unexpected, although 3 years is quite a lot.
    You certainly have one nice garden there (on the picture).

    I am sorry if sometimes i overcommented, maybe it would be better i have put it shorter and studied more about swedish language inbetween.

    Good luck, Sara and i wish one day maybe we meet in some better circumstances, with more optimism and better sensations for everybody.

    Got inspired a lot from your blog. Being a student major in Environmental Engineering, I will write this in my motivation letter when applying Swedish universities <3

    Thanks a lot, Steffie, that is truly heartwarming to hear. Good luck with your application!

  • sarajeswani

    Yes, definitely! I’ll mail you, Lola. Keep up the good work with the photo blog!

    Pol! Thank you so much for being my most active and loyal commenter, together with Monica! I have really enjoyed your comments and questions, which have made me reflect on many things that I might have taken for granted. A blog is nothing without its readers.

    I certainly hope you keep up your curiosity and continue your exploration of this field. Although there are a lot of things to be sad about, at least my experience is that learning what you can do about it, doing things together with others to change the situation and trying to divert my own life towards a more sustainable one gives me a lot of relief and hope.
    Good luck!

    Monica! Thank you for all your comments, it has been very encouraging to have you as a contributor and learning a bit about how thing work in the US. As I wrote to Pol (below), a blog is nothing without its readers!

  • Monica-USA

    Thank you, I truly enjoyed learning about Sweden and how problems are being solved there. Again good luck it has been wonderful learning through your words and eyes.

    Thank you, Sara.
    I will certainly continue.

    Right now i am reading 2-3 books in the field
    and collecting materials to build a wooden composter.
    The plants our transition group (on another field ~ 100 m2) planted
    have unfortunately mostly gone bad, due to serious lack of rain and infrastracture as well as those near my home (that i watered pretty frequently – bad soil ?).

    Well, now is the time to start slowly preparing for the next year, and see if things can be done better. I certainly enjoy more doing concrete things with friends or neighbours, too, but sometimes this can be very hard to arrange, even harder then collecting money. :-)

    Good luck, Sara.
