Tips for Going to a Pick Your Own Orchard

I feel incredibly lucky to live where I do near an entire community that is solely geared towards pick your own food, sometimes called U-Pick farms. Located just outside of Spokane, WA, where I live is a place called Green Bluff. Green bluff is a cluster of farms that are open to the public and they are almost operational all year round other than the coldest months when nothing is growing ....more

6 Ways to Have an Eco-Friendly Wedding

When I got married in 2009, I admit I wasn’t as ‘green’ as I am now. My green lifestyle changes have been a journey for me and I was in the baby steps portion of it at that point. I didn’t even think of doing things in a more Eco-friendly way at the time ....more
