To be entered to win my gently used copy of this book, simply leave a comment on this post. I'll announce the randomly selected winner next Wednesday.

I concluded: "Wouldn't it be wonderful if the holiday of Thanksgiving were accompanied by a season of kind-giving?"
Well, this year, I've decided to do just that. In the next couple of weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, my family will be making a gratitude tree:

:: One Green Generation describes how and when to plant garlic.
:: Amy at the Simple-Green-Frugal Co-op explains the benefits of starting a dinner co-op.
:: The Atlantic discusses the meat industry's reaction to Baltimore school's Meatless Mondays program.
I'm now using Twitter to keep track of my noteworthy green reads. If you'd like instant knowledge of what I find interesting, you can find me on Twitter as consciousshoppr.
