Well you sure kept us busing during the lead up to the holiday season. We want to thank you so much for visiting our store and making very responsible choices on puchasing gifts for your friends and family, if that is how you celebrate. Your contributions as always will be going towards our programs.
We have received such great feedback from you that it makes for a good new year resolution to keep working on our Green Store and programming here at Green-Up to provide to our community.
I have made my own new year resolution. I am going to start smiling at people more often and saying hello. There is nothing like a nice friendly hello or smile from someone in passing. My other new year challenge is to eat only organic food for one year. I've created a personal blog about it - Organic Food for One Year Challenge.
We're not just eating certified organic food, but organic food in the sense that it hasn't been sprayed with any chemicals and hasn't grown from a genetically modified seed, but grown with responsibility to save our soil and to put good proper food into our bodies. There are a lot of local farmers and people growing their own food organically without going through the certification process with the government.
I have to say that I am really looking forward to the growing season. I am excited that our local farmers are beginning the planning process of growing so much amazing produce for us. We are so lucky to have local food coop, and 2 farmer's markets in Peterborough. One on Saturday and another on Wednesday downtown.
