Hi Samantha, did you get a good program in one of those paradises?
I'm glad you are signed on to this excellent cause. I see you haven't posted much since the log in. I've tried to tell what you're holding in your profile pic. a peacock feather fan?
My pic is of me near the crest of Pack monadnock Mtn, NH wearing my t shirt from we can solve it .org
I am in Boston, a grandfather of two beautiful gilrls in NYC, Sarah and Hannah.
I operate a sustainable remodeling company called Living Structures in Boston
I have been working in one way or another for environmental balance since the 1st Earthday in 1970.
I am very encouraged to see young people like yourself engaging with the earth on behalf of humanity.
I hope you are truly interested in sustainability in food production and all energy and resource use.
Here are some links to special and vital resources I have encountered in the second half of my 60 years.
Apeiron Institute for Sustainability, Coventry RI apeiron.org
Transition USA , a movement to prepare for post petroleum times, www.transitionus.org
New Alchemy Institute, a groundbreaking project on Cape Cod MA that demonstrated solar bioshelters, now transformed
to Ocean Arks International http://www.oceanarks.org/
In Sandy Lake , PA we have Three Sisters Permaculture where growers run a working market garden bioshelter
derived from the new Alchemy designs and research.
Refer also to the Integral Urban House, a project where two biologists turned a victorian house in Berkley CA
into a self reliant home with food production, waste recycling and energy efficiency

I believe that the key to humanity's future depends on a multiple evolution of our moral, spiritual, artistic and scientific
development for each individual. I hope to share progress on these fronts with people from my region and elsewhere.
I hope you will find useful and inspiring information. Please let me know your thoughts.
