n the home, in the yard and in the community, gardening is a growing trend for Americans of all ages and genders. According to the latest National Gardening Survey by Garden Research, more than three-quarters of U.S. households are involved in some form of gardening. Gardening is now regarded as “cool” – especially among the 18-to-34-year-old crowd, including guys. “From small beginnings with a succulent here and a houseplant there, the under-35s are now truly engaged in the full range of gardening activities,” says industry analyst Ian Baldwin, who participated in the survey.

2

What is it about gardening that is so attractive? For one thing, gardening in all of its many forms gets us connected back to nature. In this digital age, many of us are spending the greater part of our days inside; getting outside and into the garden connects us back to our “Mothers” – Earth and Nature. By growing our own vegetables, fruits and herbs, gardening is also a way to eat healthier and fresher. Even in small outdoor spaces, raised beds and containers enable us to grow more in less space.

For many who garden, especially the younger demographic, gardening is also viewed as a way save the Earth. Garden Media Group’s “2019 Garden Trends Report” indicates that this is being done in several ways: by creating “pollinator gardens” and cultivating plants that attract bees and other good insects; by designing yards and landscapes with native plants that are sustainable, lowcare, and “naturalistic” and by composting plant and food waste for adding nutrients back into the soil.

Tips & Tricks

Spruce Up Your Outdoor Space Here are 10 ways to add beauty and functionality to the exterior areas of a home. Compiled by Lisa McIntire

1. Lanterns. Outdoor spaces are often in use both night and day. Garden lanterns combine beauty and function to light up paths, patios and outdoor parties. If you have concerns about usin LED solar-powered garden lanterns. Illumination has never been easier! 2. Statues. Rain or shine, in any season, garden statues add interest to outdoor spaces. Whether you are Buddha or a whimsical garden frog, there is a garden statue just right for your space. “Night Of Discovery” aluminum-and-glass garden lantern.

“Large Garden Buddha” with

3. Bird Feeders. Decorate your garden and help our feathered friends at the same time. Bird feeders attract beautiful wildlife to the area and are especially appreciated by birds during the winter months. 4. Planters. A quick and easy way to dress up the garden, patio or front home entrance is to incorporate planters. With so many styles and sizes to choose from, the creative possibilities are endless. Plants can be easily switched out for seasonal updates to your container garden display.

“Rustic Wagon” planter stand.

5. Hose Guards. A common complaint about watering gardens with a hose is that it can damage delicate plants as it is dragged along outdoors. Trip hazards can also be a concern. Using hose guards to keep those pesky hoses in place while watering plants is a pragmatic and decorative solution. “Gossiping Birds” birdfeeder with brasstoned birds on aluminum branch.

“Hummingbird” aluminum hose guard.


“Lovebirds” wall-mounted aluminum hose holder.

6. Hose Holders. Practical can be beautiful, especially when you need storage for your garden hose. Hose holders are a stylish option to keep hoses organized and out of the way. Wall-mounted versions are great space savers. 7. Wind Chimes. Easy to attach to eaves, trees or garden crooks, wind chimes add movement as well as a beautiful, relaxing sound to any area of the garden.

“Frog and Harp” aluminum-tube wind chime garden sculpture.

8. Outdoor Wall Plaques. If you have a plain garden wall or fence that needs some interest, wall plaques add instant style. Sun and moon celestial styles are a classic choice, while birds are also popular. Mix and match sizes and styles on the same wall for an outdoor gallery wall.

“Rising Sun” aluminum wall plaque.

9. Garden Stakes and Signs. For a quick way to provide style to your outdoor space, consider garden stakes. Stakes can easily be stuck into a garden plot or lawn and come in so many varieties – welcome signs, pinwheels, whimsical critters … the choices are endless. 10. Thermometers. A practical garden thermometer can also add decorative mometers come in many designs. Another stylish option with a practical twist is the wall-mounted clock-thermometer. These decorative pieces have separate dials for the time and the temperature.

can be enjoyed elegantly at a wedding or casually at the dining room table.

Q: What did you do professionally before starting Golden Rabbit? A: I graduated from college with a degree in accounting and got my CPA. Back then, people were not hiring women for accounting positions, so I got a job with the government as an IRS agent. I soon moved up and became an International IRS agent out of Washington, DC. During this time, I also pursued an MBA in international business from George Washington University. After garden shop in the early ’80s when garden stores were still “seed gift industry. I left the store behind to my business partner and ventured to Indonesia with the goal of setting up a wholesale shopping in one of the local food markets that I discovered these wonderful enamel basins the Balinese were using to display their exotic fruits and vegetables.

Golden Rabbit 16-oz. mugs.

Q: What made you decide to launch Golden Rabbit? A: While I knew very little about enamelware, I knew I’d found out along the way. What I learned was that all enamelware is not tinware that warps and rusts, and the traditional artisan-crafted bowl I’d discovered along the roadside just months before in Bali. Once I began using a thick, sturdy, carbon-steel enamelware bowl disposable and quality craftsmanship. With this knowledge, my commitment to bringing superior enamelware to the marketplace was born. Q: Why do you manufacture in Indonesia? A: We have worked together with a team of Indonesian craftsmen and engineers for many years to perfect processes and to and time-honored techniques. We employ more than 800 skilled

Makers & Shakers people at the factory in eastern Java. In addition to at least 10 emails a day, I travel to the factory at least once a year, and the factory’s people travel to meet with us in the U.S. annually as well. I prefer doing business in Indonesia over China, as there is a stronger sense of understanding how manufacturing and market development go hand in hand. Also, the quality of raw material going into our production is much better than the Chinese-sourced materials. This ends up with a better product. Q: How many pieces and styles did you initially launch with, and about how many are in the line today? A: I initially launched with just six shapes in two colorways. All six shapes are still in the line today, but the colors have changed dramatically. We now carry 600-plus pieces in more than 40 shapes and 11 colors, including Skilled factory workers in Indonesia creating Golden Rabbit bowls.

Q: What is your favorite Golden Rabbit piece? A: My favorite piece is the baking pan. It is very similar to a Pyrex dish, but I made an improvement to the mold and made the pan an inch deeper. It always bugged me that other dishes were too shallow and boiled over in the oven. This was my chance to improve on an age-old cooking accessory. Q: What is your sister Kathy’s role in the company, and when did she join Golden Rabbit? A: Kathy Williams is our go-to for tradeshow sales and product development. She is very astute at knowing what is on the market and the retail prices at which product is moving. Being my sister, she has been around since the beginning, but she became actively involved about six years into the business.

Golden Rabbit “Peter Rabbit” children’s gift set includes 8½" plate, 14-oz. bowl and 4-oz. mug.

Q: What’s the best gift you’ve ever given? A: and Kathy to Indonesia with me. It was an experience of a lifetime for both of them, and I enjoyed having them along on a trip I usually make by myself. We visited Bali and Java in a quick 10 days, capped by 40-plus hours of travel time on each end. Q: What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? A: By taking Laura and Kathy with me, I could see Indonesia again through new eyes. This was my gift to me.

Golden Rabbit 10½-qt. roasting pan measures 4" deep.

Q: What are the top three things on your bucket list? A: Number one: I love to travel and have been all over Indonesia and China, but have never been to England. Strange, huh? Number two: I’d like to meet John Hardy, a famous jewelry designer and conservationist who lives in Bali. Number three: I’d love to take a weeklong meditation yoga retreat and just get away from it all!

Tips for Selecting a Backpack

W

hen purchasing a backpack, the American Occupational Therapy Association recommends trying on backpacks ahead of time and considering the following: Make sure the height of the backpack extends from approximately two inches below the shoulder blades to waist level, or slightly above the waist. Backpacks should have well-padded shoulder straps that can be worn on both shoulders to distribute the weight of its contents and to provide even balance. Backpacks that are too heavy or worn incorrectly can contribute to discomfort, fatigue, muscle soreness and musculoskeletal pain, especially in the lower back. A loaded backpack should never weigh more than 10% of total body weight.

2019’s Hottest Hue W

hat’s on trend in giftwear this season? Almost anything in Pantone’s Color of the Year – Living Coral. As Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, observes: “Pantone’s Living Coral is the perfect color for spring and summer gifts, as it immediately speaks of the warmth that we expect nurturing color, one that encourages you to reach out and touch it.” In fashion and accessories, according to Pantone, Living Coral inspires experimentation and playful expression in both men’s and women’s street and runway styles. The warm shade suggests comfort and positivity in simple color stories, but becomes textures and even monochrome looks. An appealing accent shade, Living Coral provides a striking contrast across the color spectrum. When used as a bold statement in settings and décor, Living Coral fosters immersive experiences and interactive spaces that are tied to a playful spirit, according to Pantone. As a color linked to tactility and human connection, Living Coral in shag rugs, cozy blankets and lush upholsteries creates a warm, comforting and nurturing feeling in the home. With its ebullient nature, Living Coral adds a dramatic pop of color to any room setting – whether in decorative accessories, in tabletop or on the wall. Living Coral pairs well with marine blues and earthy greens, as well as with sunny yellows and even some hot reds – making it the perfect warmweather hue for a variety of giftware, personal accessories and home accents. In2Green “Eco Coral Key” 50" x 60" recycled-cottonand-polyester throw.
