Let's Work Together for A Greener IN !

Profile Information

About Me:
I am and have been an activist/advocate and grassroots community organizer in Indiana,United States and globally for 22 years now.
I've worked with the IN Citizens Action Coalition for 19yrs. and worked for CAC 7yrs. I started my activist/environmentalist career as a volunteer for the Hoosier Environmental Council in 1990.
I was nominated to the Board of Directors of HEC, in 1996, but I had to decline due to divorce & needing to get a full time job :(
I started" Earth Ethics" Environmental & Natural Health Care Products,catalog & trade show sales company in 1994, I was also an
Eco consultant,Holistic & natural health consultant & Holistic Pet Care consultant.
I was the first Cleaning Company in Indianapolis& IN to use only non toxic & natural cleaning supplies. Also under the name of " Earth Ethics"
I originally started my cleaning Co. in the 80's under the name of
"Worry Free Cleaning Service". I incorporated the name to Earth Ethics after I changed over to using only eco-friendly cleaning products.
My 1st Company was "Earth Mother" handmade household cleaning products in 1992, but I mostly taught people how to make them for their selves,not so good for sales,lol.
I was editor for "Earth Day IN "-1994's grassroots handbook and author of 3 articles. In 2001 I Co-created the 1st "Take Back the Earth Day" event with 2 young creative & passionate people( Dan Sockrider and Jan Feldman)in cooperation with Common Bonds and about 31 Environmental,political and Social Justice groups in Indiana.It was a protest to the corporate sponsorship of Indiana's Earth Day event.

*I moved to Arizona in mid-March 2011 but I am still very active on issues that affect Indiana and wish to keep informed. However ,of course I am no longer able to attend events in Indiana.

Adorable profile pic! Still fight'in the good fight here in indiana, how can we not, when nearly every Indiana waterway from Lake Michigan to the Ohio River has pollution problems, according to a new survey. Shame!   Our asthma rates are going through the roof, especially in adults now, thanks to big steel, big coal, gov daniels. Fracking is out of control in neighboring states, like Ohio, and  frac sand mining is destroying Wisconsin, and Michigan dunes.

Purslane is another one, is a highly nutritious 'weed' becoming super weed?
Yes, I just read Demmie comment on Current, just might have to comment there, and just geting around to sign petition....why do they insist on city address???

This is getting frustrating, how could we have let Monsanto get this far....
Monsanto's Crops Spawning Superweed Epidemic in U.S.

I know for a fact that even here in Fort Waynes community gardens the pigweeds are huge and extremely difficult to control at garden sites that previously grew farm GM soybeans.
Even with the refugee pop. harvesting this stuff to eat, there is still gonna be huge problems with certain amaranths like Palmer amaranth.We should start considering species of amaranth as a crop instead of trying to eradicate it.

OMG! That is so appropriate to the fact I bought some peaches from some cranky farm market vendor recently, not organic, from Alabama, auctioned produce, that tasted like crap, and actually stung my mouth, as well as my son-in-laws mouth, we asked each other what in the world is on/in these peaches???!!!!
Yea, we missed you, wondered what yer up to.....we been busy in the community gardens working like field hands of course.....

Hi Leah, this is too cute!

6-pound foal born in NH may be world's tiniest


6-pound foal born in NH may be world's tiniest

Jim Cole Four-year-old Garrett Mullen watches three-day-old pinto stallion named Einstein in Barnstead, N.H., Sunday, April 25,2010. The diminutive horse born in New Hampshire could lay claim to the world record for lightweight foal. The pinto stallion named Einstein weighed just 6 pounds and measured 14 inches in height when he was born Friday in Barnstead, N.H. Those proportions fit a human baby just about right but are downright tiny for horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein. (AP Photo/Jim Cole)

Beautiful!!! You hit it right on about corporate sponsorship!! I will be attending SaveMaumeeEarthDay event by AbigalFrostKing on Sun. Plenty of local non-profits, grass roots, hand on action, education. She is acutely aware of corporate sponsorship, as we all should be, and green washing.
