Food. Global Gardens | Boise Photographer

Global Gardens is an agricultural program for refugees. They spend time working at an array of community garden plots. This particular one is off of Franklin between Cole and Curtis and this woman (whose name was very pretty but impossible for me to spell) was from Somalia.

If you’re interested in learning more about Global Gardens I would highly recommend watching this really well done  YouTube Video put together by Idaho Power and Global Gardens.

Look for Global Gardens at the Capitol City Market on Saturdays. Their booth will be fully stocked this time of year!


Best B’s in Your Bonnet. Boise Bargain Basket.

A Boise Weekly Editor’s Pick: Boise Bargain Basket

Each time I go in this store it gets better and the people seem to be nicer, and every time I go in I ask myself, why I don’t shop here more often?! In fact, I think I will head there for my groceries this week.

Try to keep this place a secret though. I avoid Winco for a reason…! Click here for details.

13th Street Pub & Grill

The 13th Street Pub & Grill has opened doors on a prime corner in Hyde Park (where Bungalow used to be).

Nick and I have been there a few times for dinner. Delicious baked Mac & Cheese ($4.95, I believe). Awesome chef salad. Great fish & chips. Plenty of microbeers on tap. Great patio. What more could you ask for?

Rumor even has it that they will be enclosing and heating their patio for the winter.  Ahhh…and only a mere 4 blocks from my house. Lucky me!
