A visual treat today, from a workshop we love very much in Poland, I Love Nature (yes, indeed we do too). Their organic, rustic style is pure perfection, made only better by this duo's ease and skill with a camera and impeccable styling. The beauty of the wood and the quality of the craftsmanship is what we notice and covet, any of these pieces would make a very welcome addition to PGM's Organic Kitchen! Perhaps one day, and until then, Happy Monday everyone! Read More

We feel so lucky to have such a lovely and wonderful group of stockists who make Pure Green available in their shops. Brick & Mortar Living is just such a store, it looks filled to the brim with fantatic and inspiring items, not to mention a fab little group of quarterlies. They recently posted the images seen below of new issues they have in the shop, including our latest, Volume 5, Wanderlust. It is always a huge pleasure to be shelved next to my esteemed peers, Kinfolk & Anthology (to name but a few). Thanks to Julia for sharing, and if you find yourself in New Westminster, British Columbia, stop in to pick up a copy and leisurely enjoy the many treasures at Brick & Mortar Living.

Today we're welcoming a new columnist to the PGM blog, Jacqui Scoggin, the author of a blog I have long admired, Good Things Grow. Her monthly column will explore the thrills and challenges of growing a kitchen garden—along the same lines as Jesse & Melanie's Homesteading column in the print magazine, who couldn't use a little more garden-to-table, homesteading advice? With recipes?! We're thrilled to have you Jacqui, welcome! Read More

Every so often on the PGM blog we're going to introduce a slightly longer format, a featurette, if you will. In our premier edition, on Valentine's Day, we're talking with Christine Chanter, a perfumist from Toronto who crafts decadent scents with natural essential oils, a veritable treat for the senses. These photos were taken by PGM contributor Rebecca Wood; Christine was interviewed by our lovely intern Caroline Ariail. Read More

Volume 5 | John Muir

Posted By:Celine
In our newest issue, Volume 5, Wanderlust, we were lucky to have Kelsey Brown (the illustrious and talented author behind Happyolks) write a gorgeous piece about hiking the mountains in her backyard of Denver, Colorado (with stunning photos shot by her partner Shaun, which made our cover!). Kelsey wrote the article using a quote from John Muir as a jumping off point, and I thought it would be fun for Kelsey to share a little more about John and why she admires him so. Read More

I'm very excited to share these photos with you providing a tiny little glimpse inside the new issue. Themed 'Wanderlust', this issue centers on travel. It tells real stories of the adventures of our contributors, and it shares the beauty of this world with you, hopefully evoking within you a deep sense of stewardship for this place we call home. Each page holds a treasure, and visually I'm proud to say I think this is perhaps our best issue yet. The contributors who worked on this issue with me have really outdone themselves, and to take in the pages with a warm cup of tea is to spend an few hours dreaming of faraway places.

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. Truly. As a small, independent publication, each time press time rolls around I find my time monopolized, and keeping on top of it all is often a challenge. That said, while I'm busy stuffing envelopes, applying address labels and packing boxes of magazines for retailers, I came across Waxing Kara in my 'inspiration' folder, and fell in love all over again—I'm taking a time out to share it with you!

Sharing Part 2 of our Fig & Fauna Hidden Galleries series from Volume 4, this time we're headed outside in the magic hour (those amazing, late afternoon hours before dusk when the sun washes everything in it's warm glow)! Read More

In Volume 4 of Pure Green we were so very lucky to work with Fig & Fauna. Megan and Rose, the incredibly inspiring duo behind that team, submitted a gorgeous story which remains a favourite a mine. One of the hardest parts of putting together each issue is choosing which photos to print, as there are usually quite a few waiting behind the scenes that never see the light of day, which is a shame! I've been saving a two-part post of unprinted photos from our Fig & Fauna feature for a rainy day, and while today's not rainy, it's certainly frigid. The thermometer outside my kitchen window read nearly minus 30 degrees Celsius this morning and I thought we could all use a little beauty to warm us up, especially after my brief blog hiatus as we put together Volume 5 (now available for pre-order). In today's Hidden Galleries post, I'm sharing images of Megan's home... which she tells me isn't finished but certainly looks amazing to me. Enjoy! Stay tuned for part 2, shots of the farm, tomorrow.
