Westcoast Families - - Editor's Note -

as we West Coast­ers con­tinue to be blessed with an abun­dance of life-giv­ing wa­ter fall­ing from the heav­ens (hey, we have an unas­sail­ably pos­i­tive at­ti­tude at West­Coast Fam­i­lies), it may be a chal­lenge to en­vi­sion the balmy days of sum­mer we have ahead of us. Nev­er­the­less, it’s time to make sum­mer plans, and for that rea­son, our April is­sue fea­tures part deux of our Sum­mer Camp Guide, this time de­voted to sleep­away camps. Sleep­away camp, also known as “peace and quiet week” for moms and dads, can be the best week of sum­mer for your kids, and if you need help with lo­gis­tics, we have ex­pert ad­vice on ev­ery­thing from choos­ing the right camp, to pack­ing, to plan­ning for any anx­i­ety you or your kids may face. April is also our Green Is­sue, and we’re thrilled to pro­file the cur­rent David Suzuki Foun­da­tion “Queen of Green,” To­vah Paglaro, as well as delve into the pos­i­tive di­etary, so­cial, and phys­i­cal ben­e­fits of com­mu­nity gar­den­ing with your fam­ily. Whether you live in the city or the sub­urbs, in an apart­ment or a house, there are grow­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to get to­gether with oth­ers in your com­mu­nity and learn about rais­ing healthy, sus­tain­able food for your ta­ble. Let’s all ap­pre­ci­ate th­ese April show­ers, they are what keeps our beau­ti­ful coast green, and re­mem­ber, if we all keep mak­ing small pos­i­tive steps to­ward a more sus­tain­able life­style, our home will stay green for our chil­dren and gen­er­a­tions to come.
