My foray into the Southshore (of Boston) brought me to last week’s Southshore Celebration at the Marshfield Fairgrounds. Three tents full of green products and services for living kept me busy as the green field reporter during live broadcast by the WATD Southshore Mornings News team.

I loved all the fun, handmade products! There were also great services to help people and businesses with their carbon footprints, cool workshops and demos, tasty food, and great non-profits. It was a blast reviewing all things green and cool at this first time Southshore event!

I met so many interesting people–like Michelle from Promising Hope Animal Sanctuary in Middleboro. She was spinning lhama wool on an old-fashioned, pedal-powered wheel. The sanctuary not only adopts these animals, but they care for them while providing a resource for locally-produced yarn! Check out my video.

Preserving local food and spud water workshop at Southshore Celebration, October 2011

I tried a lot of truly yummy food–like delicious vegetarian wontons with a kickin’ aioli from Bryantville Deli in Pembroke, and more. I really enjoyed meeting Rosa Galeno of North Easton. In her workshop I learned about spud water–a gluten-free thickener for soups and more. I stopped at her booth to buy lunch–a tomato-basil-mozzarella sandwich and salad of pickled green beans and artichokes–AWESOME!

All the great business and non-profits make the Southshore a frequent emerald destination for me. I can really hang out in a place where you can Get Your Green On.
