On April 1st, Whole Foods Market announced its intent to partner with Gotham Greens to create a commercial-scale rooftop greenhouse on top of its new Brooklyn store — the first such farm of its type to be integrated with a large retail grocer.
Yesterday was the third annual Small Business Saturday — a day designed to encourage us to “shop small” in support of independently-owned establishments. While I love the concept and its goals, it’s silly to do this only one day a year. It’s simple to patronize small businesses every day. I’ve compiled ten ways to shop small and eat better […]
Today is the third annual Small Business Saturday, but why stop at a day?!? It’s simple to patronize small businesses every day! Check out the first five of ten ways to do it.

Frozen veggie burgers, “chicken-less” nuggets, soy cheese, and seitan sausages often seem more convenient than cooking a meal of plants, grains, and beans. But given that […]

Although this spring was a disappointing one for morels in my area, the past week’s mushroom haul has more than made up for it. One of the tastiest mushrooms in season now is the Oyster Mushroom.
