Aloha Eric, and mahalo for adding me to the site. I am working on getting my blog up and going. I have been living in Hawaii for the last 7 years or so and have just started a permaculture project here. Permaculture is already has a lot of steam here in Hawaii but I'm hoping to start traveling home to my corner of Indiana and becoming an activist.
Thanks Eric! I appreciate the warm welcome and your support. I have another RSS feed from my Examiner page, but I think will go with this one for now. I will get some original content on here from time to time, some of which will reference more detailed content on other sites. I'll seek out some groups here as well. I"m familiar with the Ning platform, but I won't hesitate to contact you if I have any questions. Thanks again.
I never thought I would say this but Damn I miss Indpls.!! coming here is reminder of ALL I've known & the memories,the people I have worked with on so many issues & organizations,the events,friends,family,familiar places & faces..so many times I've just wanted to pack up and come HOME! ah well,isn't going to happen and have only been living in Bisbee ,Arizona a year mid-March. Much I do love about this town & the mountains,still oh so much I miss..Hope all is going well for you and am still hoping for "A Greener Arizona" ning site.Though it is a very big state and I live in a very small town. We do have a lot of events,a nice farmers market,a small Earth day event but is all far from what I am used to!
The Maplewood School Garden Angels have moved from a 2 acre garden to a 7acre urban farm with in the city limits of Fort Wayne. We will grow 4 acres of green beans for local hunger relief efforts. We will have family garden plots for our Burmese ,African and Hispanic farmers. We will enlarge our composting efforts of leaf pick up with the city in the Fall. We are raising funds to buy an Allis Chalmers B tractor for cultivation purposes.We plan to grow lots of cowpeas!
Remember: Organic gardening is aiding and abetting Earth's beneficial allies with keen observation and eco-friendly detterrence of the usual suspects. E.Smiley
Hi Eric, thanks for your note. My communications agency has been a couple of years in the making. I've been freelancing since 2008 after several different positions within public relations and marketing. Later this year, I will be officially operating under two21, the name to which I've decided to assign my brand. I have a few clients in areas related to sustainability and it's an area of personal interest. I've decided to focus on serving those businesses that have a sustainability mission to share or are considering to do so. A few areas I hope to serve: green building, conservation, alternative energy, sustainable agriculture, walkable/bikable cities and other transit issues, etc.
You rock Eric! My husband and I enjoyed meeting you at Indy Green Fest Friday. We hope to see ya again at the expo tomorrow. I will be speaking at 11 at the expo, "A Girl and Her Green Dream." If we miss you tomorrow, I will be sure to follow up this week!
Up here in Northern Indiana we have terrible solar and poor wind in some areas. People who live in these area should consider social lending as an alterantive to personal investment in wind and solar. I have an idea and domains that I would like to sell (only at my cost) to someone who can be an idea champion for this project. Less than a $100 investment could be worth big to the person who makes this happen. No time for me.
We would like some of the Greener Indiana cards to hand out (25-50-100? not sure your mailing limit). We are new to this site and not sure how to contact you. Our business address is 7462 Fishers Station Dr #121 Fishers In 46038. We hope to encourage greener choices for our clients. We find that some clients who claim they want to make better choices actually change their minds when they find out the cost are higher (initially) vs standard material. We hope through sites like yours they will realize the benefits. Thank you.
I saw the Chuck Weiss memorial posted on your page. I went to that. I did not know Chuck very well, but I was greatful to be a part of honoring his memory. Thank you for comments about Green Broad Ripple. See you on the river...
Do you know where I can recycle clean white Styrofoam? There used to be a company called Createc on Guion Road that would take it but they closed down years ago. I don’t have a whole lot of it, maybe 10 cubic feet but if I cant recycle [...]
At last! We are being invited to comment on the Covanta Advanced Recycling Center. Covanta has submitted their solid waste permit application to IDEM and the comment period is now open. Comments are due to IDEM by September 10.
Now that we as a greener Indy have shiny new garbage cans coming — street by street, one per (plus-or-minus) 100,000 households — please, what can we hope is our collective plan to recycle/reuse the (plus-or-minus) 300,000 unrecyclable and unacceptable old trash cans we have sitting in our garages?
