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.
There are lots of great events coming up for March, and you can read all about them in the new issue of Going Green. The City of Wilmington will hold its inaugural Green Spring Carnival, with scavenger hunts and other fun projects to teach the kids about recycling. Poplar Grove Plantation will once again host its annual Herb & Garden Fair, March 29. And if you have any interest in bees, Wilmington will be the site of this Spring’s North Carolina State Beekeepers Association Meeting, March 6–8. This event offers workshops geared for professionals and for fourth-graders and everyone in between. (They even offer a family discount registration fee!) Check our calendar for details.
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: March 4 we’ll discuss Lisa Hamilton’s Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness. Also in March, we’ll discuss the second section of Richard Heinberg’s The Post Carbon Reader—this is an anthology we decided to read throughout the year in addition to our regular book of the month.
