Going Green at the Grocery Store

Hey, Twin Cities natives! Have you ever been to the Wedge co-op on Lyndale Ave. in south Minneapolis? If you haven't you should check it out. Bethany and I went last week and were blown away to see all of the different local produce and products that the store carries. We stocked up on fresh fruit and goodies for sparkhouse and when we went to check out, we discovered that when they itemize your purchases, they indicate which items are organic/local. Sweet! I think next time we go, we'll aim for 85%.

Yesterday was another great filming day for ReNew. Bethany and I, along with our awesome filming crew and Sasha Andreev, our VBS decorating video host, met at the Minneapolis Photo Center to film the overview video segments.

Although we spent a lot of time under some very bright and hot lights, both Bethany and I had a lot of fun talking about ReNew and sharing our hopes and dreams for the program.

The film crew also filmed Sasha's intro segments for the ReNew decorating video. It is amazing to watch them work and it will be even more fun to see the videos once they are edited.

Here are a few snapshots we took during filming. Enjoy!
