In honour of Earth Day (April 22), we present two new books and one DVD that put the planet first.
The Green Vine
Erosion. Runoff. Cork materials. The environmental issues facing wineries go on and on. What’s an earth-loving oenophile to do? Pick up Shannon Borg’s The Green Vine: A Guide to West Coast Sustainable, Organic, and Biodynamic Wines, which is filled with info on almost 200 sustainable wineries in BC, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California. At local bookstores.
Earth Body Yoga
Eoin Finn is on a mission: he wants to show how a relationship with nature improves health and happiness. His new Earth Body Yoga DVD—filmed in some of the world’s most beautiful places, including BC’s West Coast—celebrates our interconnection with nature. For each one sold, the Arbor Day Foundation plants a tree. At Lululemon or online at www.blissology.com
The New B.C. Road-Side Naturalist
From the population cycles of the snowshoe hare to where to find the northernmost examples of Douglas firs, this book has it all. The New B.C. Roadside Naturalist: A Guide to Nature Along B.C. Highways by Richard Cannings and Sydney Cannings gives a highway-by-highway breakdown of the province’s ecology. At local bookstores.
