Time to Get your Green on!

If you follow junk EVOLUTION then I'm sure you've already heard me talk about growing your own food because it's really the first step in eating healthy and being green.  Our friends from the Unity Gardens are hosting lots of wonderful classes this winter, that are listed below.  Their blog also has some great idea's for recycling coffee cups if you don't carry your own mug.   So check out their blog for more information.  We will also be hosting their annual plant sale on May 6 & 7.
