Spring has finally sprung! As the last dredges of winter make their way out, and we can finally begin to stop and smell the roses, it’s also a good time to remind ourselves to take the time to appreciate our beautiful planet. As spring approaches and the world around us begins to bloom with fresh beginnings, we are also excited to announce a fresh start as we introduce ourselves to the community as the new publishers of Parker Lifestyle.

While April 22 is Earth Day (and Jeni’s Birthday!), here at Parker Lifestyle, we are celebrating the planet all month long with our “Eco” issue.

Here in this issue, we highlight the people and places in our community who are committing to keeping this planet beautiful—from local farms using sustainable practices and eco-friendly organizations giving back to the community, to farm-to-table restaurants focused on local ingredients and fuel-efficient vehicles for sale at local dealerships.

But, you don’t have to be a farmer or business owner to do your part. Shop at the local farmers market and support local growers, visit local businesses who create eco-friendly products or even just start recycling!

No matter what you do, we at Parker Lifestyle support your “green” efforts.

Thank you, Parker, for welcoming us with open arms. We are thrilled to embrace this community and, as always, we can’t wait to see you around.
