Our latest baby is just about to go out into the big wide world. We have just completed the first edition of a new magazine called Green Events that Jez and I have been working on. It’s like an ethical Time Out magazine and it’s available from health food stores etc free from this week.
It was surprising how much fun iut was to work on something completely new and different and I’m so pleased with the way it has turned out. We got our copies yesterday and it’s colourful, vibrant and stuffed full of juicy events taking place in London and the South. From yoga workshops to drum jams, theosophical discussions to straw bale building workshops, if it’s green and happening it’s in there. Pick up a copy from your local health food store, bookshop or wellbeing clinic and let us know what you think. Alternatively, if there is somewhere that you think out to stock such a brilliant sounding magazine, drop us a line and we’ll sort them out with some copies. You can also download a copy here (2mb PDF)
So now it’s on to the next edition of The Green Parent, which I am so excited about. We’ve got some really juicy topics in the issue that is published in November. There’s an article on welcoming spirit into family life through rituals and traditions, a piece on celebrating our daughters’ first period, what to expect from a craft camp, how to make your own bear and why our children’s generation will be known as Generation Hot. Copies will be available from the second week in November. Or you can subscribe and get it sent to you before it arrives in the shops, and receive over £35 worth of organic beauty products as well.
We have settled back into our family routine of working together in the mornings and getting out exploring and doing extra curricular activities in the afternoon. So, as soon as the girls have finished their workboxes for this morning we’re off to read a chapter of The Phoenix and the Carpet and then go foraging in the woods. We could probably all do with a snooze as well – the transition into Autumn has made us all quite sleepy!
Welcome to the new blog from the Green Parent office. Here we'll talk about what's going on in the small and quite leafy headquarters of the UK's leading green lifestyle magazine. We'll share news that interests us and talk about green issues and natural parenting. We'll share advice and information from our own experiences of living a green lifestyle. And we'll even tell you what we are reading, eating, drinking and thinking. Hope you get plenty of food for thought here.
