Greening Up a Conference

Today, I am at CMRecharge. It is an adventure that I took on about 10 months ago with 2 others.

Last week we stayed on track with the meal plan for the most part. I tried my hardest to create healthy, homemade dinners for my family every night.

30 Pounds of Apples and Here is What Happened {Locavore Living}

My apple picking obsession didn't start in early childhood for me. Nope, it started in college at The University of New Hampshire. At DeMerritt Hill Farm.

A Trip to Union Square Greenmarket With Eckerton Hill Farm

I have been working with Eckerton Hill Farm on their social media for a good while, but just last week I had the opportunity to help them out in a new capacity as a market hand. I LOVED IT!

I Am In Love With Tomatoes…Heirlooms To Be Exact {Locavore Living}

So remember how I said before that I "taught" myself to like tomatoes last year? Well, I think I went a little overboard because now I am in love. I am in love with particularly colorful ones.

Freezing Those Tomatoes For Use All Year Long
