Welcome to our Spring 2016 issue!
Winter is but a distant memory and by now most of us are well and truly out of hibernation! As you shift your focus to tackling spring chores or enjoying new activities, we invite you to set aside a few moments to peruse the pages of this issue. Here is where you will discover a fantastic lineup of articles and ideas to satisfy your physical, mental, and emotional needs.
With the arrival of better weather and increasing daylight hours, we typically become more active as we seem to acquire new levels of energy and enthusiasm. If cycling is among your chosen activities, you will find useful and timely advice in “Get Ready for Cycling,” which advocates a tune-up not just for your bike but for your body. If you’re more of a gym lover but wondering about gym memberships or home workouts, be sure to read the Q&A article that outlines the pros and cons of each to help you decide which would better suit your lifestyle.
The beautiful Okanagan valley is a grower’s paradise, so perhaps gardening is your passion. Did you know that composting is an easy way to enrich your soil while also reducing waste going to the landfill? Find out more in “The ‘Dirt’ on Compost.”
Our cover feature takes growing to a much greater level with a huge impact on the local environment and economy. “From Field to Table: Sustainable Food and a Small Footprint” looks at the partnership between two local businesses with a shared philosophy to connect the farmer to the miller to the baker to the community. Don’t be surprised if your mouth is watering by the time you reach the end of this truly inspiring article!
