Kick your splitter to the curb, the Spruce Stove designed by Roel de Boer and Michiel Martens is here and making life a whole lot easier.  Insert the entire tree trunk into the drum, pushing the end bit by bit and let it burn down.  The hum and crackle of a wood burning stove makes your home feel all cozy and smell all seasonal.  Its about time we supplemented our energy with sustainable fuel, so get in touch with your environmentalist side and build a fire…then plant a tree.  Hi five, we’re on to something!

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
