Living Green With Aloha with Hawai'i Surf Artist Heather Brown

Aloha Everyone!

Wow! I still can't believe it is already August! July was like a blink of an eye for me.

So far August has been great, catching up on some commissioned pieces, enjoying some beach time and I was surprised by 3 new family member that my husband Chris brought home to our house the other day!
TanTan-men, Mochi and Poke! They have taken to their new home very well and our two older hens have been really nice sharing their home.
Heather Brown's Chicks!
Brian has been really interested in them, he even saved tantan-men the other day when she escaped through a small hole in the coop, he rounded her up and barked for us to come help.
Brian being a good friend to the new chicks
It is so nice having the chickens around, natural chemical free pest control, daily organic eggs and great organic fertilizer for our fruit trees!

We have had so much fun welcoming the new chickies into our home but we also had to take care of some work on the land. We did some research and found out we could use 100% recycled tire chips as mulch around our plants. This mulch allows all of the water to get to the plant roots and since it is rubber it will not grow fungus, mold, etc and will last for years and years! Sure better than tire fires and land fills!

  1. Beautiful!! Love all the earth friendliness girl! Whoop! XO!

  2. cute little chicks, I wish they would stay that size forever, but then again there will be no fresh eggs. We have 2 hens roaming around but have yet to begin laying. Where did you get the tire mulch from? Please post a link. Thanks!
