Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a freelance writer/editor/speaker living in the wilds of northern Indiana--in Plymouth, more particularly. A work-at-home-mom and part-time English professor, I'm also Master Gardener and a member of the Garden Writers Association of America. My writing on the environment has appeared in Indiana Living Green Magazine, Greeniacs.com, the Plymouth Pilot news (column), and the Covenant Companion (Creation Care Column). I have found myself lately writing more and more about faith and environmental issues (i. e. , educating and encouraging local faith communities to be more green). But, hey, I'm freelance--I'll write about anything!

Take a Green Vacation!

It’s Spring Vacation time, which gets me in the mood to plan a trip. Home or abroad, I’m still the same person who can’t bring herself to toss a pop can. Why should I leave my green ways

Green vacationing means choosing activities that have less impact on the planet: staying closer to home, driving instead of flying, or choosing lodgings…

Climate Clues: Reliable Sources for Facts About Climate Change

The recent shenanigans dubbed “Climategate” made me even more aware of the need for clear climate information. Here in Indiana, a state that depends on fossil fuel – especially coal – we can’t rely on hearsay and political pontificating to make good decisions about our future. So where do we look for information that’s objective, scientific, and up-to-date?

Snuggle Up With a Scientist

Thanks to the Internet, scientific data on climate change (usually found in on-line… Continue

We share much in common! Well, except I no longer pursue freelance-writing gigs. "Academia" is keeping me in beer-and-pretzel-pittance for now! Good luck with the "down-size!"

Hi Marianne,
We recently hosted recycling at the Feast of the Hunter's Moon in the Lafayette area. It is a big event and it went very well. The event is a re-enactment, not focused on being green, but obviously we wanted to make the event more green anyway. I can give you lots of details if you want to call or email me. We might even be able to loan you recyclinig bins. Thanks. Rae Schnapp 765-714-4829 or rschnapp@hecweb.org
