The YES! Garden

Posted by sshutts at Oct 23, 2009 01:52 PM |

Here's a peek at some of the actions we are taking here at the YES! office in Bainbridge Island, Washington, from individual choices to decisions that affect the whole publication.

This summer, managing editor Doug Pibel started a garden at the YES! Magazine office. He says he's always coveted the lawn space and pursued the idea with Becca Hanson of Studio Hanson Roberts. The garden—a raised bed currently growing lettuce, China rose radishes, mizuna, arugula, spinach, rainbow chard, kale, and beets—is available to everyone in the condominium complex. Some YES! Magazine employees took extra plant starts home with them to begin or to add to their own gardens.
