About Me:
Building community & growing food for the Local Food System in this time of Transition without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and with as little use of petrochemicals as possible!

I work in and with my community to grow food for my local food system, teach people about Aquaponics and Permaculture, and help others Transition into a Post Carbon world.

Three things help me each day: putting my fingers into the soil, learning how to seed, cultivate, harvest, & preserve food with friends, and the practice of The Gift Economy.

I use 10+ different Google Services on any particular day, I am also available for Google Service consulting (I am not a Google Employee)

Occupation: Permaculture + Aquaponics + Environmental Education (Urban-Rural) = Local Food Farmer and proud of it! You can also add Web 2.0 developer to the mix as well, if you would like to see how integrating Google Services like shared maps, calendars, docs, sites, & groups can increase the visibility and communication of your organization please contact me for a free consultation.

Yes, I do need your help.  Not sure where to go with this community.  I'll be in Valpo tonight speaking at the Opera House after the Carbon Nation movie.  If you're going, we could chat afterward.  If not, we should make time soon.

Thanks,

I am particularly concerned with e-waste. A lot of the componants still work and can be used in schools or churches or shipped overseas. Also they could be recycled. They are pretty toxic when they are landfilled and that is what happens to them mostly.

I also chuckled and wrote a blog post on this site about a 10 year old saving monroe county 25k by turning their computers off at night. It takes a 10 year old to see the obvious truth.

You are right...it is the small things that matter. I look forward to learning from your contributions to the site.

we are asking that all of the businesses that wish to use their logo as their icon will talk in specific terms about how their business is working to become greener. Several of the campgrounds that are members of the site have worked to institute a recycling program this year. Perhaps you could collect e-waste and make sure that it is disposed of properly?

Hopefully we can get some specific ways you are working to improve the environment with your business.

Take care

Through a glass, darkly

Is there anywhere to recycle the glass parts of a sliding glass door?  We recently replaced ours with French doors and don’t want to just throw them away.  I contacted RecycleForce, but they said they can’t accept them nor do they know of anyone that can, so I’m hoping you [...]

Tennis, anyone?

Renee,

Any ideas about what I could do with old tennis balls?

Your loyal reader,

Don Smith

Don,

Advantage, Renee! I do have some ideas for recycling tennis balls.

If you have more than 200 tennis balls, check out the reBounces recycling program. They will provide [...]

Brushing up

Renee,

I realize that not all toothbrushes are created equal, but are toothbrushes recyclable?

Sarah

Sarah,

Toothbrushes are made of at least three materials – nylon bristles, metal staples that hold the bristles in place, and plastic handles – which makes them challenging to recycle. They are not accepted by [...]
