By Katherine Brown - When trying to identify what makes my neighborhood healthy, I was hard pressed to find glaring examples of what is traditionally associated with “healthy living.” There aren’t any farmers markets, open green spaces, bike lanes, etc.  The street that I live on is residential and is pretty quiet, and in some instances, kind of boring.
