Net Zero Blue Skies

A Net Zero home is nearing completion, and it is exciting to watch all the details come to fruition. From setting the foundation, and now to the beautiful blue paint color, things are moving along.

Eat Healthy Support Community

The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is gearing up for 2018! If you're unfamiliar with what a CSA is, it's basically paying your local farmer upfront for the year, and then getting delicious and healthy produce from about June until January, depending on the harvesting seasons. Our expert Urban Farmer, Colleen Owen, is growing some wonderful food this year.
