I am happy you have found your way here through the big internet jungle out there.
A big warm welcome to The Orange Tree Diary!
Who am I?
I am a biologist with a creative mind. Although I already know a lot about nature, my passion is to learn more and more about it and pass it on in an inspirational and creative way. I am involved in many projects about biodiversity and volunteer with my own designed nature guiding. In that way I am hoping to bring people closer to nature.
Why The Orange Tree Diary?
In some cultures, an orange tree symbolises generosity, wisdom and pureness. Which, in my mind, represents a lifestyle that is closer linked to nature.
When I planted a seed from an organic orange, and time went by and the little seed became a little plant I got the idea about a blog called The Orange Tree Diary. I like writing, I like gardening, so why not start growing a garden on my little french balcony and writing about it on this under this cool blog name.
The blog quickly became a way of documenting what is going on in my garden, and how important it is to work in harmony with nature in order to grow your own food. But I wanted more.
While I still document what is happening in my garden, the blog changed to a more broad focus on nature. I love to write, I experiment on being funny, but most of the time I like to write inspirational. With one foot in nature and one in a creative bliss this blog touches topics which in one or other way is about closeness to nature.
I hope this blog can inspire, educate and put a smile on your face. If not, well, just check out those funny animal clips on Youtube 😉
So here it is; a blog for inspiration, thoughtfulness, creative solutions and wisdom from own experiences, from a biologist thinking outside the box.
