OK, let's just get this straight. New Mexico has the best green chile in the world. Is there any doubt about that? If so, can Colorado really compete with the green deliciousness that we are so famous for?… Continue

I hate to break it, but we're kind of butting up against the last call for chile this season, as most roasters seem to close out their supply at the end of October. With that in mind, here's who we know is still roasting:

A year ago, I express mailed a particularly good batch of freshly roasted green chile to a former New Mexico coworker and friend who is now living in Alaska. She was JONESING for the chile. A few weeks ago, she returned the favor: freshly caught Alaska salmon. Tonight, I combined her special package with my own recent batch of freshly roasted. The result? Sublime.
Do you have stories of sending green chile and having friends return… Continue

God knows what many of us would do for a freshly-roasted batch of New Mexico chile -- but waiting five hours in the hot August sun?
That was the case today at the new Sunflower Market at San Mateo and Academy. Before I entered the store for other items, I had to visit the spectacle in the south-side parking lot: no fewer than 25 people waiting in line, all of them with shopping carts full of burlap bags of chile waiting to be roasted. Some… Continue

New Mexico is a “Hot Bed” for the emerging Green Economy. It’s a garden bed nurturing the seeds of change to fruition. I have been on a job search for five months in the Land of Enchantment, and during this time I have found a myriad of self employed people and businesses built on the foundation of sustainability. My searches have been focused primarily in Albuquerque and the surrounding region, and my Google searches have brought me to people and businesses through out the entire state. For… Continue

One of my favorite rites of spring is coming next month - The GreenBuilt Tour put on by the U.S. Green Building Council-New Mexico Chapter.

What is FOOD SECURITY?...
The 2008 New Mexico State Legislature approved funding for development of a genetically-modified chili pants and seeds. And, in the Nov. 4th General Election, if you voted for the Education Bond - you unwittingly endorsed programs to implement production of these genetically altered and patented
crops. That means, if you grow a plant, save the seeed and plant it again - You OWE Monsanto (or the corporate patent holder of that seed)

Why mess with perfection?
The New Mexico State Legislature has approved funding
to develop genetically-modified chile.
Is there anything wrong with our chile now that it
requires modification? Isn't it wonderful just as it
is, delicious and nutritious and flavorful?
Genetically-modified seeds automatically become
the property of its creators.

As a budding green event planner, I've benefitted from attending / speaking with current green event planners that have paved the way. Some events addressed every element down to the types of soy based inks they used when printing. Other events didn't even consider putting out a recycling bin for guests. The following list outlines considerations when throwing an event that is 'green'. Please add comments / ideas so collectively we can make a robust… Continue

Every month, green-friendly people meet at One Up (previously Carom Club) downtown on the second Tuesday for happy hour. I've been the past three months - gets a good mix of local government, alternative energy, green building, etc. folks. Last night we had around 10-15 people, but the month before drew around 30+.

It’s always good to “get out there” and do something good for your community. Even if it’s super hot outside and the work is a little bit more rigorous than you’re used to. There’s just something about the feeling you get after you’re done, knowing that you got off your ass and instead did something positive for others. Add to that the fact that this certain gratifying feeling can get addicting, and it usually makes it easier for you to roll out of bed that next Saturday morning and venture… Continue

With all the focus on “eco-celebs” it can be easy to forget the millions of low-income citizens who only wish they could afford the environmental peace of mind flaunted by their favorite movie stars. Hollywood has good intentions, but I’m pretty sure the film actor’s guild will not be responsible for saving the planet.
Let’s estimate, and say that roughly ten percent of Americans are moving forward into the new green economy, this means 90 percent are left behind in the grey pollution… Continue
