A new company takes composting at home to the next level.
Composting, like life, requires symbiotic relationships. It takes a healthy community of microorganisms to form networks, work together, and exchange nutrients to survive and create new life.
For Sebastian Brown, it’s a concept that feels familiar and true because he’s heard it all before—not in the world of composting, but in his work in community building.
“That’s the only way soil is healthy: having that environment where the web of...
Pablo Eduardo creates larger-than-life pieces that exude both joy and pain.
“Listen…. Can you hear it?”
Pablo Eduardo pauses, tilting his head and pointing to the heavens. At first it seems perfectly quiet here, among the thick green of flowers and trees, but after a moment of stillness, there it is: The sound of caterpillars munching on leaves, a sound so insistent that one wonders how it could have ever gone unnoticed. Other things break through the apparent silence as well, like the buzzin...
From my home in woodsy New Hampshire, memories of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter always seem cast with a golden glow. It’s evocative and mysterious, a place where narrow, mazelike streets wind between stone buildings, and laundry and Catalan separatist flags hang from tiny balconies. Boys kick a soccer ball in an alley, and trees heavy with oranges grow next to the gothic Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi.

With many properties designated as City Landmarks, Boston’s

eagerly recruits voluntary help, I jumped at the chance to participate.
As the mound of juicy, fat-bellied fried clams threatened at any moment to topple over the edges of the paper plate and onto the picnic table, I felt something that I don’t usually feel at dinner time: doubt. “I don’t know if I can eat all this,” I told my mom.
I glimpse them first through a row of ancient maples as they play their game in
the sunny, open field. These baseball players might be ghosts, merely apparitions in the Indian summer morning, were it not for the physical evidence of dust clouds kicked up by the bounce of a well-hit ball or the running of feet across the worn-flat grass.
The craze for classes where you paint and sip wine has inspired endless spin-offs—knitting, cake decorating, flower arranging, you get the idea. Upside: A fun night out with pals. Downside: The classes can feel a little twee.
Marketing itself as the place “where paint night meets power tools,” Cricket Studio in Annapolis, Maryland, offers an amped-up alternative: BYOB woodworking classes. For $35 and up, the studio provides the materials and machines to construct a serving tray, wine caddy or...
