At PGM we are so lucky to be able to work with photographers Joseph + Jaime on a regular basis. We have thus far featured two of their incredible vacations in Italy, including this trip to Puglia in our current issue, Wanderlust. Joseph + Jaime's photographs have a certain quality about them, they are luminescent, and I couldn't resist posting a few additional photos not seen in the printed edition. It is always a struggle choosing which photos to print, thank goodness for blog posts to share all the extra goodies. To read more about their trip and Puglia, scroll down for links to both our print and iPad editions, and in the meantime, enjoy these photos and moment of respite they afford you. Read More

The Pure Green blog had to go an a little hiatus, becuase, well, I had a baby! Jonathan and I welcomed our new baby girl, Charlie Aimée MacKay, on the 23rd of March, and we've been getting to know her (and fall hopelessly in love with her) since then! I am slowly easing back into the swing of things, and what better way to do that than with a new post that celebrates spring by the Kitchen Gardener, Jacqui! Read More

Wanderlust for iPad

Posted By:Celine
After the hustle and bustle of releasing Volume 5 in print, we got straight back to work on creating the iPad app for Volume 5, for all those readers out there who appreciate the portability and versatility of reading on your iPad. Working with the ever talented folks at Lackner//Buckingham on this follow-up issue to our iPad launch, Volume 4, again I'm so impressed with the final product. Read More

Inside Volume 4 we had the opportunity to be among the first to taste the spirits created by Dillon's Small Batch Distillers, a brand new craft distillery located in Ontario's Niagara region, a place well known to wine, beer and spirits enthusiasts around the world. The experience was delightful and it was clear from the start that Dillon's dedication to honest ingredients, meaning that transparency in their process is of paramount importance, is a recipe for instant success. We were smitten from the start by their committment to using natural, local and real ingredients and fragrant botanicals, mixed with sustainable practices and fabulous branding and design. Each bottle goes so far as to list exactly where the ingredients come from, a transparency sorely lacking in much of today's market. We highly suggest you read the full interview with distiller Geoff Dillon inside Volume 4 for the whole story on mastering a true craft. Read More

Inside Volume 4 of Pure Green Magazine we featured a beautiful story photographed and written by Elisa Bricker, who had spent a glorious month in Paris this past summer. While there, she relished visiting the Raspail marché, an organic farmer's market and one of the oldest existing markets in Europe. As always, there were too many beautiful images to print all in one story, so we're thrilled to share some unpublished gems with you here. Read More

Today we're taking you to Heirloom Restaurant in Vancouver - the second I chanced upon these photos via Pinecone Camp, I was hooked and knew they had to be shared. The design of the restaurant is spectacular, from the green and white colour scheme, gorgeous white oak floors, those herringbone subway tiles, to the upcycled elements such as the cabinets seen above crafted with recycled windows. The feel is harmonious yet understated, classic and tailored with just a hint of rustic and retro for character. Besides being visually stunning, Heirloom is a vegetarian restaurant with an organic wine menu and local craft beer selection. "Heirloom Restaurant reflects a dedication to using thoughtfully chosen organic, fairly traded ingredients with a local and world conscious initiative - We make good choices." Two for lunch, please!

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.

With recipes?! We're thrilled to have you Jacqui, welcome! Read More
