    I made it to the challenge but way after the fact. But I'm here now!

    Hey everyone... I'm sorry I've been away the last couple weeks. I've been co-facilitating a camp and working zero waste at events in the community. I feel like I am living sustainability & kicking a**! That being said I realize I have not been keeping some commitments and promises I have made to the group. One being sending information...

    Hello! I'm sorry I haven't been active in the class the past two weeks. On the 31st my wife and I significantly increased our family's ecological footprint by welcoming our second child to the world. Things have been a little silly since then.  I'm especially disappointed to have missed today's discussion, since sustainable...

    I find it ironic that our topic for today was transportation, and I have flown thousands of miles and driven hundreds of miles to land myself in Moscow, ID this week. My sister lives in town, just a few blocks from Main Street and a few more blocks from the city's parks and amazing neighborhoods. Even though I live 'in town' at home, just 1.2...

    I am out of town for the next 10 days, so can't actually build my home community this week. That said, I am inspired by this group and am encouraged to take more regular action once I get back home. Although it is hard to feel personal when communicating with voices online, I love how I am starting to recognize different people's voices,...

    I recently participated in a Neighbor Circle led by Neighborhood Connections.  Here's an example, http://www.lawrencecommunityworks.org/node/64. Last week participants from the Neighbor Circle met at a local business in the neighborhood to continue building relationships while supporting a locally owned ice cream shop. It provided us time to...

    There's a book that I always reference, Staying Healthy with the Seasons, https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/198370/staying-healthy-with-the-seasons-by-elson-m-haas/9781587611421/  "Nature’s cycles affect not only the external climate, but also our internal health and mental well-being. With this as its primary tenet, STAYING...

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts today. I appreciate being part of a group of people all trying to figure out this crazy puzzle - - balancing water, energy and our habits. I watched the Story of Water - - While it was nothing new in terms of content, I appreciated the directness of its message: We are being manipulated to think we need and...

    For today's class on Water, I followed the given link and found that I am located in the convergence of the Upper Colorado and Arkansas-White-Red watersheds, but for the activity, I would say I mostly affect the Upper Colorado region. The site was difficult to navigate and didn't load properly, so I wasn't able to find the most prominent water...

    Greetings everyone! I made it back safely from Costa Rica! I had a truly transformational experience and am ready to dive back into my sustainable lifestyle learning full force. I apologize again for missing last week's discussion, but food is my passion, so I am already doing a lot of work with my coalition group to help localize our food...
