Become A City Gardening Guru With Fresh City Workshops

When I was a kid, my family always had a vegetable garden. I can remember planting the carrot seeds and impatiently waiting through the long summer weeks for them to be grown enough for me to rip them out and eat them straight out of the ground dirt and all, or standing in front of the bushy pea vines and stuffing the fat pods into my mouth til I couldn’t move.

Green Living Show 2014: Sneak Peek

I spent the day at the Green Living Show in Toronto yesterday – also known as Nirvana for green geeks, homebuilders, fashionistas and more – and had loads of great chats with fellow eco-minded individuals and vendors. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come (just a quick post because I’m heading back today – and so should you! Get your tickets online!) (more…)

Toronto Green Living Show – April 25 – 27

GLS14-lockup-400x115Spring means it’s time for the Green Living Show in Toronto! This is the premier eco-show in Canada, with over 400 exhibitors, 5 main stages and loads of fun. Hosted at the cavernous Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place, this show will not only feature tons of new products and innovations in the eco-space, you will also find something for absolutely everyone in your family from the youngest to the youngest at heart.

Green Living Show – Tickets giveaway!

It’s baaaack!

The Green Living Show is on again from April 23-25 at Direct Energy Centre in Toronto. This show is fantastic. It’s Canada’s largest green consumer show, with 400+ exhibits, a wonderful sustainable food court, excellent new vendors, green seminars and more. Last year I found an amazing number of new eco-products that have made it into rotation for everyday use around here. If you’re in the GTA or can make it there that weekend, this is an excellent, informative and entertaining way to spend an afternoon – and you’ll also get fabulous deals on some of your favourite eco-brands.  In addition, the Green Toronto Awards are taking place on Friday.  The City of Toronto’s environmental awards of excellence honour and celebrate the individuals, organizations and companies leading the way to a cleaner, greener and more liveable Toronto.

And hey, guess what? As part of the Green Living Network, I’ve scored some tickets to give away – whooohoooo!  Just reply in the comments and let me know which of the attractions you’ll be looking forward to the most. Leave your comment – and a way for me to contact you – by Wednesday April 14 to ensure I can get the tickets to you on time.

But even if you don’t get a ticket here, don’t worry. Just bring some electronic waste for recycling, and Samsung will pick up your admission ticket. Not a bad deal.

See you at the show!
