Green Living ● Holistic Health ● Community


LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

W

elcome to Our BerkshireGreen, your premier holistic resource for healthy living in Berkshire County and the surrounding area. I would like for you to think of this publication as your publication . . . as our magazine. My wish, with your help, is to create an ever-expanding unified network of holistic and environmentally conscious individuals, businesses, and services in our community. Our focus is Berkshire County, but we will include subject matter from outside of the area that we feel is relevant and will be of value. The concept of green, healthy, and holistic living is becoming immensely popular now, to everyone’s benefit. Many of us have participated in this practice in one form or another for many years, but we are not all aware of one another, and the unique and valuable products, services, and information that we each have to offer. This magazine, our monthly networking events held at fine locations around the county, and our website at OurBerkshireGreen.com, will give us our chance to connect and grow.

We believe that the easiest way to achieve our common objective to promote holistic awareness is to collaborate and freely share information. With this in mind, we have chosen to place Our BerkshireGreen Magazine and our website under a Creative Commons License in place of a standard copyright. This Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives License, sometimes known as the “free advertising” license, allows anyone to freely copy, distribute, and transmit the work, although it must be attributed in the manner specified by the author or licensor, and no one may use it for commercial purposes or alter, transform, or build upon it. Best wishes and good health,

All other submissions should be written in the third person (preferred) or in the second person. An example of writing in the first person is: “I am holistic...” Second person: “You are holistic...” Third person: “He, she or it is holistic”. Articles must not be written as a thinly disguised ad.
