March 13, 2008 12:37 AM - , Radish Magazine

Long before I began wading through labels like “cage-free,” “organic,” and “free-range” and shelling out $4 for one dozen farm-fresh eggs at a specialty grocery, my grandmother was selling them out of her Iowa farmhouse for 50 cents a dozen.

March 7, 2008 12:38 AM - , Radish Magazine

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Stacey Hurlin fondly recalls living on a seven-acre property in Fairfield, looking out her window at a pond, a large oak tree and rolling hills. 'It was just gorgeous,' she said. She then describes the pioneering spirit it took to sell her 5,000-square-foot house, move to a much smaller home and join a community on the outskirts of town that embraces conservation over extravagance.

March 6, 2008 05:14 PM - , Radish Magazine

How do you recycle a fish!? That’s a question we are asked often at Recycled Fish, and it always makes us smile. The short answer – you let it swim! Recycled Fish is the non-profit organization of anglers as stewards of the resource. One of the most tangible things we anglers can do is to release our catch. That’s “Catch and Release” fishing, and it’s caught on! Over 80 percent of Americans now release their fish most or all of the time. But the “catch and release” conversation is still a good starting point for how those of us who fish can be stewards of the fishery, and our name “Recycled Fish” speaks to that.

E-design: Ecology, electronics shaping home interiors
March 6, 2008 09:37 AM - , Radish Magazine

What’s next in home design and decor? Greenness and gadgetry, that’s what. Local design experts say that technology and ecology are shaping the way homeowners build, renovate and otherwise outfit their homes, and they see energy savings and electronics as fuels for the fire. “I think that laptops — and I’m not quite sure where it’s going to go — are going to change the way we use our spaces,” says licensed interior designer Davia Gallup of Davenport, Iowa, owner of HomeFront Interior design. Gallup uses a computer-aided drafting program like the one seen on the HGTV network’s “Hidden Spaces” program to show her clients what their dream spaces will look like before they’re renovated or built from the ground up.
