What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

From defunct playset to resilience boosting raised beds

As promised here are the before and after shots for the raised beds I put in for my sister. The playset was due to come down and go to the dump and it made sense to reuse the wood, redwood, to increase my sister's family resilience. As you can see I have also installed a solar clothes dryer for her. She did the stone work for the patio. You can also see that the corn, beans, turnips, chard, onions, cucumbers and lettuce are well on their way.
