From the Grid Office: New Year, New Website, New Issue

February 2013 / Issue 46Happy 2013! The past few weeks have been busy ones here at the Grid office, and we’re so excited to finally share what we’ve been working on.

We’ve updated our website to make access to our print and online content even easier. Articles are now sorted by topic and can be accessed through individual “blog” and “magazine” sections. Plus we’ve added a sidebar to give easy access to our latest tweets, podcasts and upcoming community events.

We’ve also uploaded the digital edition of our February issue, which is on newsstands this week. The cover story looks at the vacant land problem that plagues Philadelphia and the proposed solution—a land bank that could give the current 40,000 vacant lots real development potential. Other highlights include a food column on why the lowly Russet potato should be a staple in winter kitchens and a lesson in tree identification at Awbury Arboretum.

We’re looking forward to 2013 and already have some exciting projects planned—including a special editorial partnership for March, a new insert on local food, and Grid’s 50th issue. Our next Grid Alive won’t be until March, but expect some details on a special February event to be shared shortly. In the meantime, explore the website, check out the new issue and get ready for a new year of sustainability stories!
