Nature's Wisdom & Healthy Home: April Letter from Publisher
Spring has officially sprung, and we’re ecstatic to present Tucson’s very own Green Hero, “Mrs. Green,” aka Gina Murphy-Darling, on the cover of our “Nature’s Wisdom and Healthy Home” issue!
We’re proud to partner with Mrs. Green to announce her new book, Your Mother Called (Mother Earth)…You’d better call her back! Don’t miss an opportunity to pick up a copy, or to hear Mrs. Green speak; several of our favorite local bookstores and salons are hosting book signing events during the next couple of months (see calendar of events for specific dates and locations).
Be sure to take part in the wealth of earth-friendly activities occurring in Tucson this month, or take a step at home toward greater environmental consciousness.
April is Bike Fest month, and Bike Fest Tucson has created a month-long calendar of events designed for kids, tweens, adults, business owners, die-hard bike-to-work commuters, casual cruisers and everyone in between. Download the complete schedule at BikeFestTucson.com.
Tucson will host its 21st annual Earth Day Festival and parade at Reid Park on April 18th.

You can also visit the Habitat for Humanity Habistore on April 22nd for its Earth Day sale, where you can take advantage of huge discounts on all donated merchandise.
With Nature’s Wisdom on page 22, we remember our fundamental relationship to nature and its crucial role in our well-being, encouraged by lessons that inspire, heal and sustain us.
Bloom in peace and renewal,
