The eco-centrics introduces us to Sadhu Aufochs Johnston, Manda Aufochs Gillespie and their baby daughter, Zella Rose. Mr. Johnston is the Commissioner of the Department of Environment for the city of Chicago and he thoughtfully "walks the talk". A great piece, it outlines how "Chicago's First Family of Eco Conciousness" implements their personal green agenda at home - how they live, shop, clean, and get around.

Also from H&G this week:

The Tribune launches a Blog: Beth Botts is writing "The Chicago Gardener", a new Tribune blog. In addtion to her own new project, Beth points readers to other local garden bloggers in "From Winner to designer to blogger"...

Up on the Roof: Details on a prize winning rooftop garden in Lincoln Park.

Garden show on hold until 2008: Garden in a City is now slated to be a biennial event, up again next year. Too bad - we really enjoyed it last year and were looking forward to it...
