When we have kids, we have a wonderful opportunity to make deliberate changes in our homes to ensure a healthy, toxin-free environment for them as they grow. At this workshop, parents will get all their questions about creating wholesome homes for young ones answered. And, we will explore ways to raise kids with an awareness of and connection to Mother Earth.
Questions the workshop will address:
What kind of diapers should I use?
Which toys, clothes, and linens are healthy and safe?
Which bottles and containers are easy on the earth and good for my child?
What is the environmental impact of my home products and practices?

We're excited about North East Trees event this Saturday, October 11th, "Dig It."
As it's Sustainable Kitchen month, and a time when we're all beginning to look ahead to making mouth-watering, community meals, we thought some grub might come in handy. And not just the kind you eat.

This isn't exactly a sustainable kitchen topic, but imagine a pleasant line of laundry outside your kitchen window (or outside your front door or in your shower) that lets the sun do the drying job marvelously, sans any energy-using machines.

We talk a lot about water conservation in Silver Lake and Los Angeles at large. And we're always encouraged by the front and backyards around us that boast native, drought-tolerant plants and the people who do water-saving practices like watering plants after sundown as most H2O use occurs outside the home, taking care of lawns and the like. Find out more about outdoor conservation here.

Fall is here, which around these parts does mean pumpkins and squash, but also means puffy clouds, sunshine, and Santa Ana winds. It also might mean thinking ahead to holidays shared with friends and family and evening of firing up the oven for a warm, nourishing meal at dusk as part of your routine.
