• Water Harvesters of the World Unite!

    I’m flabergasted by the City of Santa Fe’s decision to ONLY allow plumbers to “conduct” water harvesting projects. When I asked a plumber friend if he would pull a permit or three, “Sure," he paused, deep in thought, “but…how do you get water from the canale to the cistern? Is it gravity?”
    Water harvesters of the world unite! We MUST get the city to QUICKLY change its tune!!! Plumbers know water harvesting as well as marines know bicyles!

    It's unfortunate that the current city administration doesn't have the leadership capabilities that are needed to properly direct the current Land Use staff persons. If the administration had any leadership presence, staff would be directed that we should be making it easier to build green infrastrucure rather than more difficult. The foxes are guarding the hen house these days.

  1. I would be surprised if Mayor Coss or the city manager knows about the obstacles that staff has just put in place. A great opportunity to let the mayor know about our concerns would be at the jobs forum this Friday, 12/11, from 9:30am to 11:30am at the convention center. BE THERE!

The final frontier.

These are the musings of an engaging enterprise.
Its thirty-year mission:

To create a greener planet.

To seek a better life in our lumbering civilization, and

to slowly go where we are all are headed anyway.


Is an unproven system for generating wide-spread sustainability.

it asks for 10 minutes a day for a year. At the end of the year, it asks for 10 more.

So in the second year, you spend just 20 minutes a day, in the third year, 30 minutes.

If you keep up this pattern, 27 years later you spend over 4 hours per day being extremely green.
