Springtime in North Carolina is a time of beautiful colors.
You can find so many things to do in our state, such as hiking and biking the many trails, enjoying a vineyard tour, spending a night out at the ballpark, and, of course, planting your garden to reap fresh vegetables and greens later on.
Jason Schneider (our editorial director) and I visited Your Local Greens in Burlington, N.C., where we talked with Doug Calaway, one of the company’s founders. Doug came to North Carolina to retire, but found a new project in hydroponic farming. He gave us a tour of their farm—one of only three of its kind in the U.S.—and explained how the greens grown there go from seeds to post-organic produce in just a matter of weeks. He also gave us a sample taste, and we both agreed they’re the freshest, tastiest salad greens we’ve ever had!
For those who travel (or have always wanted to), I hope you enjoy our new TRAVEL column. One of the best things about traveling is trying new foods, and Christie Soper of Suncierge writes about some of Europe’s hidden culinary gems. Many people think of France and Italy when they think of great food, but Soper tempts our taste buds with offerings in Austria, Belgium, and Croatia.
As always, in this issue we have enlightening columns for your reading pleasure.
