About Me

As a child I can remember my parents telling me to turn the lights off when I left a room, recycle, reuse...how to not be wasteful...It would seem I have been environmentalist all my life without even knowing it...these things were just part of everyday life. Now as an adult, I'm taking my environmentalism to a new level with the help of my husband. We are starting up a farm and updating an old homestead to be energy efficient while using environmentally friendly construction. It's a challenge..a big one. In fact, my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cape Verde, West Africa, has been invaluable. But it's worth it. In the end we'll have a self-sustaining farm and a minute carbon footprint. It's a worthy gift to give back to Mother Nature who nurtures us unconditionally.

Quotes

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew. ~Marshall McLuhan, 1964

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. ~Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

Hi Jayne - just thought I'd let you know that the smiley face on your second link to your articles is stopping the link. If you just put a space in between the bracket smile and the url, then it should work out!

Pivotal words and comprehensions help to clarify and guide a reader to different ideas and parts of sentences. They help connect one phrase to the next and direct your attention. <a href="https://www.seowebanalyst.com/marketing-services.html">seo services</a>

There is a large portion of multicultural students at SUU whose voices aren’t being heard,” Edginton said. “I actually voted that we take $4 away from the SUUSA fee and give it to the Multicultural Center.”..<a href="https://www.polaroidblipfoto.com/LouiseWatson" target="_blank">cell phone radiation protector</a>
