Hope everyone had a wonderful week! I’ve collected some interesting links for you and I hope you enjoy them. Have a great weekend!

Re-Nest offers some very helpful tips on buying organic food on a budget. They’ve gathered info from New Greener Family and some of their suggestions include buying more from local growers and buying food in larger quantities.

On The Gardening Life, Shirley shares some beautiful photos of the changing autumn colors near Ft. McMurray, Alberta. The winding river provides a perfect contrast to the orange, yellow, and dark green trees.

Andrea of Heavy Petal has been working in a community wheat field near her home. The field is only a few months old, but she’s already helped in cutting and bundling 1,500 square feet of wheat. It’s very interesting to see this process unfold in an urban setting.

Meghan shares some of her thoughts on Horticulture about the coleus cuttings she took from her garden. Now is the time to start saving plants over the winter months and enjoy them indoors.

On ASLA’s The Dirt, they’ve shared a video they created about how urban forests can fight pollution in the air. They offer a plan on how cities can plant millions of trees, which not only help with air quality, but also reduce energy by providing shade and wind breaks, among other positive effects.
