Vanessa Farquharson used to be an ordinary journalist, living in Toronto, Canada. She was writing film reviews, artist profiles, food features, travel stories and more for the Canadian National Post and just lived her life. And then she decided to make a change. One day Vanessa made the decision to become as green as a thistle, to take an exciting, yet sometimes hard journey into green life. And so she started into a year of green changes, altogether 366 (366 because the poor girl did choose a leap year).
