I believe the basis of green living is eating good food. And with all the fantastic local produce in the Treasure Valley, there’s no reason we shouldn’t be eating good food. One of my favorite parts of spring is getting some dirt beneath my fingernails and planting my own garden.

Sit Means Sit Boise is not your average dog training company. Not only has it been the number one franchise in North America for the past three years, but it has also developed specialized systems that are specific to each individual dog and owner.
Owner Jim Closson, who has been in business for 27 years, says the Sit Means Sit training system is based on the scientific principles of classical and operate conditioning and uses a reward-based communication system. “It encompasses marker training, body language, verbal languages, the language of the leash, and the language of our patented Sit Means Sit Smart Collar,” Closson says.

Locals and visitors alike have been shopping at the Boise Co-op since 1973, and they can now enjoy a new Co-op location in the Village at Meridian.
“As the Treasure Valley grows, we see more and more of a need for natural and organic food,” says Marketing Director Mo Valko. “The demand for these products is increasing over time, so the next logical step for us was to expand and open a second location.”

In 2010 a little boy named Bodhi Gavin Moore, from Emmett, Idaho, lost his five year battle with childhood leukemia. He was six years old and loved Star Wars, the Boise State University Broncos, his fort, and teasing his cat. His parents, Cahn and Meleah Moore, along with other family and friends in the Treasure Valley and with employees of Indepth Solutions, Inc., formed Team BodhiLove, to help keep this little boy’s memory alive by raising awareness and fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Idaho.
