Archive for September, 2009



Like a lot of you, the ample supply of local water has become threaded into my family life. We play in the marsh behind our house, swim at the beach, fish in the creeks, and surf in the ocean. We love it all, and I bet you do too. That’s why we all need to […]


The 2009 Charleston Green Fair is upon us, and I hope you’re planning on heading down to Marion Square on Sunday to revel in our community’s greeness.

This sustainable tour de force culminates with the Green Drinks Neighborhood […]


Compost Update :: Root of the Problem
