ecofriendly: The Farmer in the ... City? - 07/15/09 12:01 PM
You wouldn't think of an urban downtown as a likely location to meet a bunch of farmers, but 'tain't so in Albuquerque!
Every Saturday morning, from a bright-and-early 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., Robinson Park right in Downtown Albuquerque is the site of the Albuquerque Downtown Growers' Market. (OK, I know that's mighty early to be up on a Saturday morning, but hey, if you want to meet real live farmers you'll need to get up with the chickens!)
This weekly, open-air market features 100% locally grown New Mexico produce-- to qualify, fruits and vegetables must have been grown within 60 … (2 comments)

ecofriendly: Got Termites? Get Green Alternatives to Chemical Treatments! - 05/25/07 12:20 PM

Uh-oh...the home inspection showed termites! Now what?Especially for a green, environmentally-conscious homeowner, buyer, or Realtor?
