Spring Oysters, Good for You & Good for the Planet

Spring is oyster season, and you might not know that oyster farming has had a big impact on conservation in New York City. The Billion Oyster Project has been working to educate and inform people about how they are rebuilding habitats and shorelines. You can learn more from there website or this NPR article on the topic. Few things are as refreshing as a fresh oyster and a glass of bubbly Cliffton Dry.

Start a Bar Garden

If you’re like us, you may be feeling some stress from what’s available at the grocery store right now.  Maybe you couldn’t find just the herb you needed. It’s the perfect time to start your own countertop garden. With a little patience and time, you can grow your unlimited amount of fresh herbs for mixing into cocktails and cooking. We started with mint and now we’ve expanded into basil, lavender, and rosemary. Here’s a great source of info for starting your own. link
