What exactly is an Urban Garden? I asked several different people and got surprising answers. It's a community garden, it's a neighborhood flower garden, a garden where you can plant your own organic vegetables.  It's a way for schools to teach urban children responsibility, how things grow and give them something fun to do to keep them off the streets. Well, I'll make it easy for you. It's ALL of those things! Yes, you, your neighborhood, your community, your block, you and your spouse, anyone or any group located in St. Louis, Missouri can decide. And the starting cost? It's only $1 a year ($5 for 5 years)!

The Brentwood Shuffle

Do you know about the Brentwood shuffle? Well, today I'm going to teach you how to do it! No, its not a dance, but it will save you plenty of time and money.

As you know, Saint Louisans are becoming more health conscious every day, with more people exercising and trying to go back to eating well, by choosing products with less chemicals and salt, for example. And I was surprised to see the explosion in customers turning to healthy alternative, good-tasting food.
