GRID December issue release party tonight!

The December issue of GRID is hitting stands this week, so it’s time to celebrate! Stop by Dock Street Brewery (701 S. 50 St.) today from 5-7 p.m. to pick up a copy and enjoy an extended happy hour with $1 off Dock Street drafts.

Check out the latest issue to get the dirt on the benefits of composting. We’ll show you three different ways to compost at home and how to use the fruits – well, the dirt – of your labor to boost the success of your garden. If you’re not big on D.I.Y., there are also stories on residential and business collectors Philly Compost and Bennett Compost as well as commercial composter Two Particular Acres, who’s revolutionizing the way the city takes care of waste. And for some words of encouragement, read an essay from Dan Pohlig on the attempts of a first-time composter.

This issue is also packed with tips on dealing with some environmental issues winter brings like carbon-heavy holiday traveling and a limited selection of in-season fruits and veggies. Embrace the cold with some cozy holiday breakfast recipes and tips for taking advantage of garlic-growing season. Plus check out some nature-infused artwork, farm profiles and plenty of eco-friendly events to keep you busy during the holiday season.

 So join us tonight at Dock Street Brewery to munch on delicious pizza, enjoy some happy hour beers, and celebrate the new GRID. Hope to see you there!
