Tidal Creek Coop

Tidal Creek Coop and Whole Foods Market are natural competitors...they both sell food and products to health conscious consumers. But this week, Tidal Creek is encouraging everyone-including its members-to go to Wine Down Wednesday at Whole Foods. That's because these two grocers are working together to raise money to purchase and install a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filtration machine at Dreams of Wilmington. On Wednesday, August 30, 6pm-8pm, Wine Down Wednesday offers 5 food/wine pairing samples at Whole Foods for $5--and all the money is going to this RO project.

Treefest 2014 Touches Down at Independence Mall

Jan 23, 2014

Tomorrow and Saturday, New Hanover County citizens can head to Wilmington’s Independence Mall to pick up seedlings to plant for spring. The event, TreeFest, began as a 1997 initiative to help reforest the area following Hurricanes Bertha and Fran. Today, it serves to help build upon the county’s leafy green canopy, and promote local biodiversity.
