GHM_Cover_UprightIt's been a busy spring at SunriseGuide headquarters (aka our small office in Portland ;) and some new seeds have sprouted. Winter's renewal had given birth to a new publication, the Green & Healthy Maine visitors guide, which releases in June. We developed this full sized annual magazine to share the best of what's healthy, local and green with Maine's visitors. We're pretty psyched about it and hope you'll like it too! Keep your eyes peeled.
