Beyond Organic

by Kellie Gordon                         1000362 1223

Biodynamic® farming is receiving more attention every day and for good reason. As a sustainable practice with the smallest carbon footprint of any agricultural method, this farming method is also producing lush, robust, nutrient-rich plants whose health and vitality are surprising even the farmers growing them. "It's really remarkable," says Randy Buresh, founder of Oregon's Wild Harvest in Sandy, Oregon. "We've been certified organic for more than fifteen years, but it's only in the process of becoming Certified Biodynamic® that I've seen plants the size of these. The roots are strong; the soil is richer than ever, and crops are easily 20% bigger than ever before. It's amazing."


Pioneers

by John Patterson                         1000363 1113

This is the first in a series of articles by individuals who have, for the last 30 years or more, been actively engaged in building a more sustainable lifestyle for themselves and for their community. John Patterson, founder and owner of Mr. Sun Solar, has stepped up to the plate and volunteered to be our first "Pioneer" and share some of his thoughts with us.

In 1979, I put a solar water heating system on my home and was very impressed with how well it worked. I thought solar made good investment sense.

Farm to School: the ABCs of Fresh Food

by Katie Cordrey                         1000492 650

An innovative effort to bring locally-grown foods to Oregon's school children and to help them understand where their food comes from received a big thumbs-up when the Oregon State Legislature unanimously passed House Bill 2800 in July.


Flea Time

by Chip Samons                         1000496 640

Here's our choice: utilize preventative measures for controlling fleas now, or, wait until those pesky, pointed headed little bloodsuckers drive us to the brink of frustration by setting off some kind of poisonous flea bomb in our homes.


Sustainable Schools - Sustainable Solutions

by Katie Cordrey                         1000491 543

The Zero Waste Alliance's Sustainable Oregon Schools Initiative, SOSI (pronounced "so see") has taken a systemic approach to fostering healthy school environments by engaging, educating and inspiring individual schools, districts, and the organizations that support them.

The paper editions of Green Living are distributed in parts of New England and northern Oregon, its articles are almost always of national interest. We scan many publications for the most interesting stories around. Most of our columns are reprints from larger, slicker magazines (translation: even though we're a small operation, we have top quality articles). Since most of our articles have a how-to focus, they make good reference material.

We print 80,000 copies of Green Living every quarter. Most are distributed free at nearly 1,200 locations in the locations described above. Those who live outside our distribution areas or want to support us can subscribe (see subscription info).

Columbia River

local editor: Gary Munkhoff

Gary Munkhoff is a forester with over 40 years of "hands on" experience in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He writes, "as time rolls by, the old body can only endure so many years of planting trees, running power saws, and cruising timber on steep mountain slopes, so I sold my share of the tree farm back to my partners and decided to retire.

"Well, that is until one hot July day in 2007. My wife and I were attending the SolWest Energy Fair in John Day, Oregon where we ran across Linda and Daniel Pinkham running their Green Living Journal booth. We were hooked immediately on the grand idea of a free, local-national publication that offered a broad and open exchange of information on green living. So after several conversations and many emails we decided to start an edition that would serve the Portland-Vancouver area as well as the other communities along the Columbia River."
