Hey- I think I know you. I just read a post on Jain Young's page. There couldn't be more than one person fitting that description! What's up?

Oh, Hi Gavin
The local scene is getting more momentum, just like everywhere with all the focus on global warming and gas prices so high. The City has been making some forward movement the last few years. There was a green ribbon commission that made some recommendations that they've put in, like all the school buses run on alternative fuels, as well as some of the City fleet. The social and political environment is ripe for some more serious change, and it will only take a few people to instigate it. Heartland is becoming positioned to be a collaborating partner in the effort.

We're mostly working in river projects right now, but we plan to be wholistic in vision and action, like worker-owned green jobs (economic sustainability) and access to locally produced basic needs including energy, and doing it all with a commitment to this place and each other and to doing it joyfully (cultural sustainability). We are laying the groundwork now, which I suppose is the most important part of a grassroots movement.

We are also committed to being all the way outside the box for real solutions and not caving in to surface and mainstream-fad bandaid fixes.

I started sticking my nose into local establishment several years ago and it continues to be a test of receptivity and whether I can hope to be effective here. So far so good.

Well, everybody has to be famous for something.... I haven't worked for the coop for two years. they still make the salsa (not very well). they still put my name on it, so I still get complaints about it. Do I know you?
