Our Valentine to TreeHugger and TreeHuggers Part 2
At TreeHugger, where we have almost 50 writers around the world, everyone has their own choices of people, themes, memes and ideas that they love; We asked around for everyone's favourites. Read Part 1 here. Kelly writes occasionally on TreeHugger and every day on Planet Green about food; She writes:
- I love actually cooking, rather than opening packages of "food stuffs". Providing food for my family that I know is healthy, local and seasonal.
- I love both of my farmers' markets, which are quite different from one another, and also the Guelph Farmers' Market.
- I love embracing vegetarian meals rather than meat at every dinner.
- I love travelling to other places to see how other people live.
- I love my dog.

I love the melding of high- and low-tech to produce clever DIY projects that utilize strength in numbers and a sense of community to achieve objectives. Examples include the bike chalk contrails, bike kitchens, bamboo bike building workshops and San Francisco's bike lane tracking iphone app.

Meaghan loves her farmer, Karla Simmons, and writes:
I love that the more you simplify, the easier it gets to break free from the pressures of materialism. Lloyd explains it nicely in his Frugal Green Living series.
Paula writes from Buenos Aires:
Kelly's recipes on Planet Green, one that I particularly remember and loved is this pasta with lemon, yum!
Jaymi's coverage of green tech, a recent gem being the ipad story: What Does Apple's iPad Tablet Really Mean for Our Society?
All the small spaces stories.
And I love that TreeHugger has Latin American stuff and stories in general.
And Cheers to all of our readers, we really do love you all.
