Tap into the secrets of Columbia's finest flowerbeds and indoor abodes with today's side deal. For $6, you get a one-year subscription to the quarterly Columbia Home & Garden magazine (a $12 value).
With highly stylized images and richly drawn narratives, Columbia Home & Garden steers local homeowners toward inventiveness in the arts of gardening, cooking, and home décor. Local garden-shop proprietress Rebekah Cline is featured in the Winter 2010 issue with a how-to article on building a blooming, sustainable wreath from simple base of compost and soil. Let Columbia Home & Garden take you into the city's exquisite houses, including innovative loft décor projects and architectural triumphs. Columbia Home & Garden also keeps tabs on other local culture, like its recent photo essay titled Who Shot Rock & Roll, which covers a new rock-based photography exhibit at the Columbia Museum of Art. A full-color copy of the latest edition is available online, but eliminates the payoff of pawing through the glossy pages to find photo inspiration or a new favorite recipe. And for every purchase made, Columbia Home & Garden will donate $1 to the Harvest Hope Food Bank charity.
