Pinehurst Inn Celebrates Earth Hour 2011 – Lights Out and Ponder…

March 26th, 2011 by Nancy Sandstrom

From So will you be turning off your lights?

Tonight, all around the world, people will be shutting off their lights at 8:30pm as a part of this year’s Earth Hour celebration ( It’s a great moment to pause and remember that in addition to the community and political organizing we do, committing to real change in our personal lives is important too.

We can start with turning off our lights, and use that moment to think deeply about how we can go “beyond the hour” (this year’s Earth Hour theme) and commit to making other changes in our personal lives – getting out of your car and onto your bike or feet, hanging up your clothes instead of popping them in the dryer, eating food that is locally grown. We know these changes alone won’t get us to 350ppm, but they’re a part of the work we’ll need to do, and as organizers, it’s up to us to set the example of how we can all live happy, healthy, low carbon lives.

Just Eat Organic – a Great Message from Stoneyfield Farms

At Pinehurst Inn, Bayfield, we’ve been encouraging and talking organic foods for some time now – but this video says it all!

It's melting! It's melting!

Project 365 Day 7: Drops

This is the time of year in Bayfield when we start to get a little more excited for Spring and all things green. The snow has been melting with the warmer sun (which has been out much more frequently lately). We are hoping to start to tap the maples soon; gardeners are starting to plan out their gardens, and the sailors are starting to think about prepping their boats for the season. We are simply ready for Spring.

Truth be told, there is snow in the forecast for today. It’s still early. The chance of us getting one more good snowstorm is likely. While we get these days when the sun is shining and there are little streams on water rolling downhill from the runoff, we know there’s always one last spring storm.

We’re ready for it too. I’d like to think that those late season storms create a few last days of respite before the spring cleaning and planting begins at Pinehurst Inn. It also forces us to stay in for a few more days and assess what might need to be done indoors before all of our guests arrive for the new season.

So we’ll take it as it comes. Perhaps it’s time to schedule a massage. Ahhh.
