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 […]

Unnecessary Meat

Have you ever discovered that you’re being green without knowing it? Upon reading, ‘Greenpeace: A Guide to Living,’ we were surprised that a vegetable-based diet was ranked second right behind “don’t drive” as a way to lower your environmental impact. Chad and I have been lacto-ovo-vegetarians for over a decade. In my opinion, humans are […]

We’re always trying to bring you coverage of local environmental news, so here are three stories that caught my eye this week. Alliance for Planet Earth Cleans up C of C Campus College of Charleston students and faculty got out last weekend to perform trash audits around campus. The group, formally knows as the Alliance […]

If you’re trying to green up this decidedly orange holiday, walk right past those huge boxes of pumpkins at the grocery store and head out to Boone Hall Plantation. There you can pick a pumpkin right from the soil it was grown in, rather than right from the box it was shipped in. This is […]

When Gregory blogged about Mount Pleasant being interested back in August, I remember thinking there is no way the town could wrestle Shem Creek’s Mason property away from condo developers. I’m still hoping I’m wrong, so the news yesterday that the property might be condemned, and therefore easier for the town to get, was encouraging […]

I just got the September edition of “Water Lines“, Mount Pleasant Waterworks newsletter, and they have a great list of water saving tips that I thought I’d share. And I have to say, I love the fact that an organization that makes money from the amount of water we use is encouraging us to conserve. […]

3 Green Events This Weekend

While you’re enjoying a much needed break from your weekly rush, take some time to step out and attend a green event this weekend. Here are three: The Little Green Bag Project will be handing out bags at the Whole Foods in Mount Pleasant at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning (August 18th). Stop by and […]


My boys have learned the days of the week early in life, because of Thursdays. “Yes sweeties,” I explain, “On Thursdays the trucks drive down our street.” It’s quite the spectacle. We don’t listen to music during breakfast. We dare not miss the first hiss of their brakes. We run out the front door. First, […]

Open Doors Are Everywhere

I think the retailers at the Mount Pleasant Town Center are trying to create a micro-climate out on the sidewalks – a land where it’s always cool and dry, and energy is generated via the swiping of credit cards. This phenomenon of keeping doors open to attract shoppers is hideous, and flat out embarrassing in […]
