"I shall pass this way but only once;
any good that I can do or any kindness
I can show to any human being;
let me do it now.
Let me not neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."
~ Etienne de Grellet, Quaker Missionary
Sustainable Food for the Globe
My name is Norma Burnson. As an avid gardener I observe the going ons on Mother Earth quite closely. My garden is a source of nutrition; both physical and spiritual. It allows me to interact with passers by, especially the children.
My area of expertise is in strategic planning. I am also an Advocate for Food Production, Rescuing Wasted Food and the Education on both these areas. My focus is on teaching our children, future pioneers, the importance of becoming ethical stweards of everything gifted to us by Mother Earth.
My professional post goes something as follows:
Norma Burnson is the Founder and Senior Partner of Burnson & Associates. She is an internationally published author. Currently, Norma is Director Emeritous for Energime University, the world's first global platform for sustainable education. Mrs. Burnson is a U.S. Navy Veteran of the Vietnam War era. She writes for LinkedIn publisher and various other venues.
This coming January (2017), she will be joining the ranks of some of world's best selling authors and coaches as a member of the team of columnists writing for Kate Gardner's magazine, The Missing Piece Magazine.
Norma brings more than 30 years of business experience to her company's many projects. A strong advocate for Square Foot Gardening and organic gardening, Norma daily puts her skills to use to end world hunger and to promote sustainable education and agriculture.

Norma published her second book just in time to celebrate Earth day, 2015. The paperback edition of "Sustainable Food for the Globe, Everyday People producing Food in Abundance" will be available on World Food Day ~ October 16, 2016. All her books, Sustainable Food for the Globe book series arenavailable on Amazon.com.

She has many more books in mind; "Sustainable Food for the Globe, Grandmoms' Wisdom", "Sustainable Food for the Globe, Our Brother and Sister Nations" and "Sustainable Food for the Globe, Messages from Mother Earth."
In August 2016, Mrs. Burnson and her co-authors achived the position of semi-finalist for M.I.T.'s SOLVE-Lab proposal on "How can education help the children living in refuge camps?"
It is her believe that gardening, like food, music, mathematics and art, is the Universal language understood by every human being. Norma and her husband Kevin live in a small town house with a garden smaller than a postage stamp. She is the proud mommy of two furbabies, Bubbles and Flirt.
