Tip of the Day
We all want to do the best for our children, especially when it comes to protecting their health and the environment in which they live. Sometimes, knowing the most effective ways to do this can be confusing and challenging, but you don’t have to figure it out alone. Consider starting an eco-parent group in your neighborhood to learn alongside other parents. This article offers some tips.

Summer and early fall are definitely the bountiful times for local produce in Minnesota. Whether you grow your own food, belong to a CSA, or shop your local farmers market or co-op, you’re no doubt presented with more fresh fruit and vegetables than you can reasonably consume. Instead of forcing yourself to choose between the many local food items available this time of year, I recommend buying a little of everything and preserving it for the long winter months.
There are many ways to put food away for future use, including canning, dehydrating, and freezing. Canning is certainly one of the most popular options, but to be honest, it’s one that I never enjoyed doing. I’ve always found canning to be rather hot, finicky work, but I know plenty of people who absolutely love to can. If you’re interested in preserving food by canning, we have some great articles on the Do It Green! Minnesota website on the topic.

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you consider yourself a member of Minnesota’s green community or that you might think of yourself that way one day in the future. As environmentally conscious Minnesotans, we strive to minimize our individual impact on the earth and other living creatures. Reducing, reusing, and recycling have become second nature for many of us; we consider the impact of chemicals, development, and land management in our daily lives. We make sustainable choices when we buy groceries, decide how to commute to work, or plan a party.
