Flow 2 the Kitchen

Flow 2 the Kitchen

Let’s all set aside a moment and just go with the flow… actually, let’s kick it up a notch and double the flow to a level of Flow 2… Now what in the world is Flow 2, and why in our right mind would we want to go there?  Well friends, it happens to be...
Foggy Bottom Food

Foggy Bottom Food

Last week I was out in the District (of Columbia) helping my brother Asa conceptualize a design for his recently acquired row home in the oh-so-cozy Mount Pleasant neighborhood.  It looks to be a pretty rockin’ project, with LEED Platinum Certification locked in as its target.  He is hoping to set up a blog in...

Lucky Produce Gets Skyline View

Get your green thumb on, urbanites, rooftop farming is on its way and is here to stay!  Leading the charge is Rooftop Farms, a Brooklyn-based operation that has created the nation’s first commercial garden constructed on top of a building.  The 6,000 square foot farm lies above an old bagel factory in the Greenpoint section...
Oh, Inverted Quarantine!

Oh, Inverted Quarantine!

I just pounded out another solid read from the good ol’ Minneapolis public library… this book was called Shopping Our Way to Safety by Andrew Szasz and some really interesting and relevant ideas were laid on the table.  The key concept was centered around a term Szasz himself coined, ‘inverted quarantine.’ We’re all aware of...
Flexitarians Unite!

Flexitarians Unite!

In 2003, the American Dialect Society awarded ‘flexitarian’ as the year’s most useful word… this is interesting, considering that perhaps 7 people actually know what it is!  Well, I recently became one of these 7 and will help to push this figure into double digits… a flexitarian is a “vegetarian who occasionally eats meat”… Yes,...

The Sky is Not the Limit for Farming

Perhaps some of y’all have heard about a cool concept called Vertical Farming.  Basically the idea is exactly as it sounds, building agricultural infrastructure vertically in dense urban applications.  This may sound a bit wacky in theory, but the ideas behind vertical farms are valid and address serious issues that we may be facing down...
You = Hen Master

You = Hen Master

This just might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in the last 26 minutes of blog browsing!  A mod, stylish chicken coop aimed to bring fresh hand-picked eggs to the masses… oh yeah!  I’m talking Omlet, a company based out of the UK that now sells its rockin’ bird lair, the eglu, stateside. Look at...
Locavores Unite!

Locavores Unite!

An often overlooked culprit to our ginormous carbon footprint is our food and eating habits… Many are alarmed to discover that the average piece of food travels 1,500 miles to get to our dinner plate!  This obviously puts a tremendous strain on our transport system, requiring huge amounts of the ol’ petrol to bring us...
Environmental Vodka???

Environmental Vodka???

360 Vodka took the sentence ‘drink responsibly’ to a whole new level!  Introducing the first ‘eco vodka’.  360 Vodka is made with locally harvested grains, uses a distilling process that cuts energy in half, is in a bottle with 85% recycled glass, and utilizes packaging that has chlorine-free recycled paper and is biodegradable.  I’ll drink to that! -j
