From bees to buildings, magazine promotes sustainability

Annual issue of Habitat magazine released today


The new issue of Habitat features this beautiful photo of a honeybee on its cover, taken by Ketchum photographer Paulette Phlipot.

Spring is in the air, and that means the latest issue of Sun Valley Guide’s Habitat is here. The magazine, published annually by Express Publishing, covers homes, gardens and sustainability in the Wood River Valley.
    Inside the 2013 edition, former Idaho Mountain Express reporter Katherine Wutz examines how green home building is moving into the mainstream with a look at three residential projects recently completed in Hailey. Take a tour of the first home west of the Mississippi built from hemp, travel with a log cabin down state Highway 75 and discover a cookie-cutter house that hides a money-saving secret inside its insulated walls.
    Also, Tony Evans explores the tragic plight of the honeybee and speaks to the Idaho beekeepers who are helping to rescue this crucial link in the agricultural chain.
    Writer Matt Furber forages for a new breed of Idaho’s hunter-gatherers, sitting down for a sumptuous feast of delicacies plucked from the surrounding landscape by his dinner companions.
    The magazine includes a roundup of innovative eco-friendly gadgets for the home, tips for creating a beautiful edible garden with limited space and a look at the tasty benefits of kale, the latest super food.
    Also inside, the winners of Habitat’s 2013 SustainIt Awards are announced. The annual accolades recognize impressive efforts within the community to create a greener, cleaner, more sustainable Wood River Valley.
    Pick up a copy of Habitat at Wood River Valley newsstands, or find one inside the Wednesday, May 22, issue of the Idaho Mountain Express newspaper.
