Aloha From Hawaii: Let’s Plant Some Fruit Trees!

Warm aloha from Maui, Hawaii!! I have been spending the last 7 months on the islands, eating lots of tropical fruit, growing veggies, living closer to nature, and enjoying the beach and the rainbows. Hawaii is truly a tropical paradise, and one thing that makes it so is that so many people here are growing food! Not necessarily … Continue reading »

Interrupting my blogging silence to bring you a guest post by Jeff Ruether. Once upon a time he was my server at a local restaurant and we somehow got talking about the tipping etiquette. I encouraged him to write a blog post about it.  He finally did and surprised me with it in my inbox.  Tipping is such … Continue reading »

Growing a Garden In Town: Ralph Gildehaus on Jefferson Street

Growing up in Bulgaria, I had zero interest in gardening.

The Earth We Live On

Today I went to two places I have been wanting to go to for quite some time – the Washington Landfill and the Katy Trail. Very different from each other at first glance, they exist in close proximity and on the same Earth we all live on. Happy Earth Day! “What is the use of a … Continue reading »

All Good Things Come To… New Beginnings

When I started Re-Discover Washington on a whim on November 3rd, 2011 I intended it to be a month-long project. Very hesitant as first, I coyly approached the downtown merchants, telling them what my blog was all about and explaining what a blog actually was. Surprisingly, they all welcomed the idea and did not mind to … Continue reading »

What Does 2015 Hold for Downtown?

With the year coming to an end, it’s always nice to look back and reflect. 2014 has been amazing for Downtown Washington! We got quite a few new businesses downtown (BAH! Yarns, Rodrigo Pineda Photography, My Vintage Varia, 5th Street Bistro, Elements of Health, just to name a few) and all the festivals and events keep … Continue reading »

3 Years and Counting: Happy 3rd Birthday To The Re-Discover Washington Blog!!!!

They always say that time flies… I have to agree! It is hard to believe that I have been living in Washington, MO for 4 years and I have been running the Re-Discover Washington Blog and Facebook page for 3 years! What started as a fun project in my spare time to explore the downtown … Continue reading »
