Being Green in the middle of winter

People always ask.  What kinds of green "things" can we do in the winter? 
  • Compost your veggies - Not as warm in the winter, and a little slower to breakdown
  • Plant pansies and violas  - If you can obtain organic seeds, go all out and use the flowers on your salad, these are two of the many great edible flowers
  • Get a local CSA - Find a great local farmer and see if he's growing in the dead of winter, if not two words Elliot Coleman
  • Look for local Christmas Tree and poinsettia growers
  • Shop local stores instead of big "eject money out of your community" stores
