Going Green Publications
Cape Fear’s green living magazine
Read about us in Wilma! —Wilmington's magazine for women.
Thank you, Ben Steelman, for our publisher’s Port City Profile in the January 1 StarNews.
Cape Fear’s Going Green is a publication serving as the premiere guide for eco-friendly resources and lifestyles in the Lower Cape Fear River basin of North Carolina. This free magazine covers topics designed to help you make choices that save you money, contribute to healthier living, and assist you in being kind to our planet.
No matter what your interest in sustainability—stormwater management, green building, or alternate energy; using native plants, protecting our wetlands, or recycling—Going Green has information you can use.
Read the New Issue
Our Spring issue features a native perennial flower on the cover—a Baptisia cinerea, or Carolina Wild Indigo. Once established, it keeps coming back year after year, and produces showy, yellow flowers over several weeks. Read Charlotte Glen’s article on Planting for Pollinators to learn about more native plants you might enjoy adding to your garden. Also in this issue, Brady Bradshaw explains the environmental cost of producing the meat we eat. Chef Emily Lyons has created some recipes to give you ideas for using fresh produce now available at area markets. And Progressive Farms has launched a creative Food Lawns program, to make it easy to grow produce right in our own yards.
Cape Fear’s Going Green Environmental Book Club
Come join our environmental book club! We meet the first Tuesday evening of the month at Old Books on Front Street in downtown Wilmington. We read both recent work and some of the classics. Coming up September 2: Bill McKibben’s Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist. Bill McKibben may be best known as the founder of 350.org, but until we started reading this book we didn't realize how recently this Middlebury professor had become a full-time activist. The story of how this came about will inspire anyone eager to make a difference in the world. Check our calendar for details.
