make a big impact on the no impact project

November 18, 2011

You may have seen the No Impact Man documentary, or maybe you’ve been on the blog. But did you know there was a No Impact Project that organizes environmental programs at colleges, in communities, and with educators? I have to say, it doesn’t sound like this movement lacks an impact. You can help support the project while enjoying an intimate gathering of eco-minded folks over a delicious meal (and open bar!) at the first annual No Impact Project Holiday Fundraiser. Full details and link to get tickets below.

learnings for a new year

January 5, 2010

Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!

Taking the time to reflect back on 2009, I’ve realized that it was a very full year. I launched myself into so many different worlds: permaculture, food culture, crafting, Twitter, a new business endeavor, a renewed website. Along the way I’ve gathered skills and met some amazing people. Thinking back, it’s hard to believe that all of this happened in only one year (click on the pictures to visit related posts)…


Block printing

Jewelry making

Soap making

Glass bottle upcycling

Ricotta & butter making


Tweeting & meeting
I’ve met some amazing people & have had some great experiences because of Twitter

Brooklyn Food Coalition


So what will 2010 bring? Or maybe I should say, what will I bring to 2010? I’m not one for resolutions, especially at the beginning of a new year. I resolve to do things all year long, without really giving it a label. I try to have healthy expectations for what I can achieve. Here are a few things I have mapped out for this year…

  • A visit to Costa Rica
  • A learning experience in Milwaukee with Will Allen of Growing Power
  • The launch of a new endeavor – The Library of Trash (stay tuned!)
  • Blogging for Greenopolis & Aribra
  • Finding room to garden

I’ll be blogging about all of these developments as they happen, so keep your ear to the ground!
