NIFTY NATURE FIX

A Little About Where it all Started

Welcome to Nifty Nature Fix! My story starts with being raised to a Costa Rican mother and a Canadian father. I moved to Costa Rica when I was young and we lived a simple non-materialistic life. Something resonated with me that living life on a budget while being sustainable was the way I wanted to continue living. I later became a geotechnical engineer, and was driven to that career by the pure power of the earth and the soil we stand on. I then wanted to incorporate nature and soil not only into my day job but also into my daily life.

I now live in Edmonton with my boyfriend and cat where we grow most of our produce organically in the summer and farmers market hunt in the winters!  I love having the chance to share my passions and wonderings with my lovely readers. Explore my site, and enjoy.

Tastey Plant-Based Cafe - Moth Cafe

If you're into brunching like I am then you'll want to check this place out in Edmonton. My girl friend and I try to check out new places in town and she recommended we try this one recently. Side note go check out her blog "The Sunshine Sophisticate" for travel, lifestyle & relationship tips, It's great! So as you can see the design and vibes of this place are amazing. People actually went up and sat down in the hammock chair and couch while they ate it was awesome. Behind me they had all kinds of hanging plants from logs on the ceiling, I honestly loved everything about the interior of this place. After we composed ourselves and were done taking photos (mostly) we sat down at a two seater

Local Hidden Gem Fairtrade/Handmade Boutique

Last week I was walking down 124th St here in Edmonton, heading to my favorite health store and I stumbled upon a very quaint but amazing boutique. I went in and instantly was enveloped by the scent of incense. The music I heard was playing from a little antique music player at the front and I was definitely feeling fairly groovy. I started perusing the isles and instantly saw so many amazing i'd say "hippie style" garments and started getting super excited I had hit the jack pot! I haven't been living here all that long and I've really been searching for boutiques that are concentrated on showcasing local artisans and/or importing fair trade clothing. The Frog Kissers Den is located on 124

The 14 Permaculture Principles

The word permaculture may be unfamiliar to some of you, so I'll briefly explain the meaning. It was coined by two Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1959. The word is a contraction of both "permanent culture" and "permanent agriculture". They reasoned that if life and indigenous culture had been thriving on Earth for billions of years, then life and indigenous cultures must have figured something out. Permaculture began as a set of tools for designing landscapes that were modelled after nature. If we tend to think of organic gardening, renewable energy, recycling and conscience decision making as tools for sustainability, then permaculture is the toolbox that helps us organize t

3 Secrets to Find Inner Peace

From reading my blog posts or intro you probably are aware that this is a holistic lifestyle blog. When I use the term holistic, I am referring to health of body, mind and soul. Eating healthy and incorporating nature as much as possible into your life are big contributors to this but I want to emphasize how important listening to your true self and finding inner peace is.
