We have a new product at Village Greens and it’s something I’ve been excited to try for a while.  It’s banana blossom!

My husband, who is now vegan, used to always choose fish and chips whenever we were out for family meals.  The first birthday I knew him I asked him wh...

What a fantastic blog by volunteer Becca.  She is exactly right about the value of our community and how wonderful it is to see the many different ways in which we are all supporting each other.  We have seen this same dedication within our little shop in the form of s...

This month is Organic September so I’m going take a break from my usual theme of cooking/kitchen experiments to talk a bit about eating organic.
