Thanking the hands that feed us

Posted by Renae Cairns on Jul 26, 2018 2:21:22 PM

Last week we shared a bit about what a local and sustainable food system means to us and farmers and farm workers are the bedrock of that supply chain. We want to take some time to celebrate and appreciate many of the growers and farm teams that allow us to do the work that we do and to enjoy some of the most delicious organic produce in the region.

Keep Your Kitchen Cool With These No-Cook Dishes

Posted by Coley Ward on Jul 5, 2018 1:20:33 PM

We are in the middle of a brutal stretch of 90-degree days, and if you don't have air conditioning in your home you're probably doing everything in your power to avoid turning on the oven. We'd like to make that a little easier, so here are a handful of no-cook recipes that will keep your belly full and your house cool.

Because different people define no-cook differently, here's our definition: You won't need heat. No ovens. No stoves. No blow torches.

Healthy Workplace Spotlight: Rockhill Management

Posted by Coley Ward on Jun 29, 2018 1:15:31 PM
 
It used to be that if you had a white collar business in Boston, you put your offices downtown. But that's all changed. Now there are more options -- more things to consider. How many food trucks are there within a 100-foot radius? Is there a bike share dock nearby? Do you even want an office? What about a co-working space instead? Or an incubator? Better still, how about everybody telecommutes?!

Rockhill Management, a commercial real estate company that owns several buildings in Downtown Boston and throughout the US, watched as tenants left to move to trendy neighborhoods like The Leather District or Seaport. As a result of shifting makeup of office buildings Downtown, they decided a change in culture at their buildings would go a long way.

"The market has really changed downtown," said Jennifer Twombly, a senior property manager at Rockhill. "It went from a very traditional base to trying to attract companies from the Seaport and Cambridge that are getting priced out of those areas.”

"We started saying we need to attract different types of businesses here."
