Three Potato Four is an industrial vintage shop we have admired for a long time, and I'm honored that Pure Green is available there! The shop is a veritable treasure trove of constantly evolving vintage inspiration — boy I wish the PGM offices were closer, we'd be over there constantly sourcing props for Pure Green shoots!

Last weekend Pure Green made an appearance at the Centro Garden Farmer's Market, a great pop-up market in Burlington, Ontario. Based in the back lot of Centro (a fabulous garden and decor store), the market is small but it has all one could ever wish for: eggs, meat, produce, lemonade, preserves and other special treats from week to week. I loved the sense of community there, it was more like a summer social than a market! As a special guest, Pure Green and, more specifically, our Organic Kitchen, brought down some good eats for attendees. Jonathan and I set up an outdoor bistro of sorts and Jonthan cooked up one of his specialties, cilantro pork loin and margarita corn. It was a crowd-pleaser, to our delight. Of course there were lots of copies of the magazine to browse as well—it's always so great to meet new readers and get real-time feedback! Thanks to all who attended the market and gave us such a warm welcome, and to Centro and Barry for organizing! Read More
Summer time is such a fabulous time for a lot of reasons, but a major one is canoe tripping. Jonathan and I have been craving a trip for a while now—it's amazing how easy it has been in recent years to be so distracted by daily life that opportunities, such as planning a canoe trip, pass you by before you even realize. This year we decided with a great amount of conviction that we were going on a canoe trip. We've decided on the first week of August and the planning has begun. Maps were dug out and old lists and menu ideas from years gone by dusted off. Jonathan is a true campfire gourmet, so there's always a ton of planning to do but it pays off ten-fold at the end of a long day paddling. Have you been camping recently? I'd love to hear about your trip! Send stories and photos to Read More
In keeping with this volume's special feature on the night sky, and contributor Charles Nock's essay on light pollution, I couldn't help but prepare a post on the documentary film, The City Dark. Read More
This Volume, rather than create a sneak peek using in our traditional issuu preview, I felt compelled to get a little more creative. The pages of Pure Green are so textural, I wanted to try and reflect that a little more, as well as communicate the feel of the magazine, the images and the content. Erin Boyle, a regular contributor here at Pure Green, was lovely enough to take a few shots. I love the way the photos of the new issue turned out. You can almost see the texture of our paper and you get a MUCH better sense of who we are. Read More
I hadn't always wanted to be a florist. After high school I pursued an acting career, and during my training, I worked for a landscape design company. In the garden, I fell in love with flowers—the flowers I grew in the earth beneath my feet. Season by season, the evolution of a garden would leave me breathless. And just like seeds, my ideas of owning a flower shop slowly grew to a become reality: just three years ago, at the age of 30, I opened Coriander Girl. Read More
I really love taking part in and planning events for the magazine. It's so lovely to meet readers, introduce new ones to Pure Green, engage and have fun! We've got a great one coming up this week — Centro Garden, one of our amazing retailers in Burlington, Ontario, are hosting a farmer's market in their back parking lot every week with only the best local farmers and producers the area has to offer. You can find meat, cheese, produce, honey and more, and this week, Pure Green will be there too! Jonathan, our food editor, is loading up his Weber charcoal grill and we'll be serving up delectable treats in a special and very fun pop-up bistro. If you live in the Burlington area come on out, we'd love to meet you! We'll be toting our brand new issue as well! Read More

I have fallen in love with the magic of this place—Fig & Fauna. These days, I'm craving a simple life, more and more it seems. It's a hard thing sometimes to realize you may have lost touch, just a little bit, with yourself, what you truly love, and what's really important at the end of each day. I'm learning a few lessons right now and I feel thankful for it, as I'm getting to know myself a little better each day. This video (and the utter gorgeousness on their website) have given me a wee bit of an escape, if even for a moment, and I'm grateful. It's going to be a beautiful day! Read More
I'm a big proponent of projects that don't take too much time to make. It's not that I don't appreciate the carefully wrought craft, but when I'm preparing for a festive gathering, I want things to look nice but I don't want to spend hour upon hour making that happen. Enter the garland. Read More
