Archive for 'Local Produce'

I have enjoyed being a member of CSA. Serving meals made with fresh local produce made me proud. As I continue to learn as a homemaker, I realize that the meals I prepare impact our environment. Not only did I learn about different veggies, I tried new recipes. Sure, the beet chips didn’t work out […]

I am now an Ambrose Family Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member. On Wednesday evening, I picked up the first summer harvest from a volunteer’s home in Park West, Mt. Pleasant. We emptied the box and filled one of my canvas bags with cobs of corn, onions, carrots, yellow and green squash, cucumbers, beets, kale, […]

Every day my boys and I take notice of the trees and flowers blooming in our yard. This season, we are also watching vegetables bloom and grow in our backyard. The reasons for adding a vegetable garden seemed only natural, and exciting, to us. Chad and I are avid gardeners. We truly enjoy planting perennials, […]

My Favorite Reusable Bag

Many years ago as a professional ballet dancer, I carried my ballet shoes in a string bag. My pointe shoes needed air after those long rehearsals. I remember shopping with a fellow dancer and watching her dump out her shoes in the car and then refill her mesh bag with apples and oranges. My current […]

On Tuesday, April 8th, The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market will reopen for their season. From 3 p.m. until dusk vendors will be selling their local goods in the field in front of Moultrie Middle School, off Coleman Boulevard. Local growers and farmers will be selling seasonal fruits and vegetables. Right now, we should be able […]

Boone Hall Farms U-Pick Strawberries is open! The Norman family is thrilled. The ride on the “bumpy” cart is a must, and I love to point out the labeled fruit and vegetable patches we pass. Then, arriving at the strawberry fields, we venture armed with pails (bring water bottle as well, it can be impossible […]

Charleston Wants to Buy Locally

Back in January, we asked a simple question: What was your top green resolution for 2008? As the early votes came in, the energy-related choices were slightly ahead. But as time went on, the choice became clear — Charleston, you want to buy local food and products! Out of 130 respondents, 20% of you resolved […]

A great way to reduce your environmental impact is to practice a sustainable lifestyle – and that includes eating locally. Our meals travel an average of 1500 miles, and that’s a whole lot of trucks, boxes, coolers, and packaging – we can’t keep that up forever. We’ve got it good here in Charleston – long […]

No, this isn’t a local version of The Biggest Loser… It is an effort of a nonprofit that I volunteer with to ease hunger in the Lowcountry and discourage food waste. The mission of Fields to Families is to help increase nutrition to the area hungry by coordinating distribution of fresh produce obtained from local […]

Turning landfill-bound kitchen waste into rich gardening soil is a very sustainable practice, even in tiny suburban-sized doses. I love the idea of using free homemade soil to enrich the garden plot I’m using to grow some summer veggies, all while learning loads about biology, chemistry, and patience. Composting is a green activity that’s a […]
