I admit that I have not had a chance to try Pizzazz Tuscan Grille, but the “crispy panko crusted asparagus fries with smoked tomato aioli” and the salad with “organic kale, diced green apple, celery, cucumber, raw pistachios and chopped parsley…marinated in organic cold pressed olive oil, sea salt and freshly squeezed lemon” on their menu certainly caught my eye. The restaurant is not strictly vegetarian, but they have a slew of veggie options on the menu. Their website explains that “We are a health conscious restaurant, providing gluten free foods and desserts. Although we pride ourselves on being organic, vegan and vegetarian friendly, we serve a large variety of dishes that are sure to please no matter what your diet of choice may be. look for our ‘raw living food menu’ coming soon.” The Pizzazz Tuscan Grille offers plates at small and large sizes with the average small plate at $10 and a large at $16. They also offer pizza and calzones.
The down side, of course, is that it is located at the Inner Harbor at the Pier 5 Hotel:

Young Baltimore Entrepenuer Uses Green Power To Make Wheely Good Smoothies
Baltimore School for the Arts Graduate Natan Lawson is peddling smoothies to Baltimore Farmers Market goers -Literally!
At a visit to the Waverly Farmers Market this weekend I discovered Natan Lawson’s Wheely Good Smoothies stand and had to wade through eager Baltimorians just to get a peek. At Wheely Good Smoothies customers select locally grown ingredients Natan has collected fromthe market’s farmer stands and peddle blend their concoction to perfection. The process is fun and the result is very tasty. Way to go Natan!

On June 30, 2009 the Herring Run Watershed Center announced that it is the first building in Baltimore to receive LEED gold certification from the United States Green Building Council. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system. With the help of architects Ziger/Snead and Baltimore Green Construction, the former Pelham Bakery building has been transformed into an example of green design. The building is outfitted with a green roof and native plant gardens, a composting toilet and recycled tile bathrooms, a tankless water heater, recycled oak floors, recycled countertops, low flow faucets, fsc certified cabinets, a self-monitoring lighting and HVAC system and more.
For an excuse to visit the center, consider participating in the vegetable gardening workshop to be held this month:
