shop
Sliced and preserved Kirby cucumbers grown by Cherry Lane Farms $14.00

The artisanal geniuses at Blue Hill Farm in New York's Pocantico Hills have created what may just be the world's best pickle. That sounds lofty, but if you've ever bitten into one of these, you'd be obliged to agree. The flavors are so subtle, so intricate, that it's hard to believe that the list of ingredients is so simple: Kirby cukes (from Cherry Lane Farms in Bridgeton, NJ), white wine......read more

Samuel Craven directs a bubbly video for a bleary-eyed Stones Throw soul jam

UK director Samuel Craven appears to have a knack for pulling off well-executed, concept-driven music videos on a shoestring budget. Take for example his video for "Fancy Restaurant" by Gang Colours, or this one, for a loose and mellow track by Stones Throw soulster Dudley Perkins.

But Milan-based company Ogami takes eco-minded print materials to another level with a collection of notebooks that bypass trees altogether. Called Repap (yes, smartypants, that's paper spelled backwards), the Ogami-innovated paper makes use stone instead of wood. The......read more

Stone Creek Camp by Andersson Wise Architects: A green-roofed getaway in the Montana wilderness.

Long before sustainable design hit the mainstream, Austin-based architects Andersson Wise earned a reputation for creating low footprint buildings that borrow design cues — and materials — from the sites on which they're built. Stone Creek Camp, a rustic wilderness retreat on the picturesque shores of Montana's Flathead Lake, is a case in point. The central building on the property,......read more

Dan Barber: The Farm-to-Table Movement Isn't Working

read
Chef and sustainable food advocate presents radical new vision for food

As the brainchild Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Dan Barber knows a thing or two about the farm-to-table movement. Diners at the restaurant, which sits on a farm along the Hudson River, are served food that's harvested on the farm year-round. It's a great model, one that we like so much that we partnered with Stone Barns for our Mobile Kitchen Classroom project. But Barber thinks there's a problem......read more
