Natural Home

The Editor's Page, signed by Laurel Lund, editor in chief, "The Art of Green Living", gives the scope as "At Natural Home, our definition of green ... means creating a healthy, harmonious home environment in which you and your family can thrive. It means surrounding yourself not only with the people and things you love, but also with furnishings and finishes that are natural and non-toxic. It means constructing dwellings with sustainable, renewable resources that don't deplete the earth's own precious supply. . . and some stuff about body and soul, sanctuary and vitality, etc. The featured articles are: "The Last Straw"-- nationally renowned artist and author Noel Bennett's sophisticated straw-bale home, a little masterpiece; "Water: The Real Staff of Life;" "Desktop Feng Shui;" "A Visit with Environmentor Dennis Weaver;" "Living Inside Out" (outdoor living spaces); "Greens, Glorious Greens" (various fresh mixed greens for salads). There are also short articles on nurturing a sense of place in a home, kids' allergies, a blurb on Real Goods, an excerpt from Sandy Maine's new book on herbal cleaning products, an article on xeriscaping, and reviews of a vegetarian cafe in Seattle.
