• Today (and Every Day) is Love Your River Day!

    Here’s an easy way to spend some “gradual greening” time if you’re in Santa Fe on Saturday, February 13, 2010. This just in from the Santa Fe Watershed Association:

    All are invited to celebrate the Santa Fe River, the heart of our community. The Santa Fe Watershed Association, in conjunction with the City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County will co-sponsor “Love Your River Day.” Love Your River Day is an annual opportunity for the community to join together, clean the Santa Fe River and connect with the significant natural and cultural landmark, our Santa Fe River, which made it possible for people to settle the area 400 years ago. Everyone wanting to experience the River and learn more about stewardship of the River are invited to join us for this all-river clean-up before the Spring flows begin.

    The event takes place on Saturday, February 13th at DeVargas Park, located along the River between Guadalupe Street and Sandoval Street. Registration for the clean-up begins at 10:00 am. Hot beverages and snacks will be served during registration. The clean-up will continue to 1:00 pm.

    Santa Fe County, Open Space and Trails Program, who in January, 2009, joined the Adopt-the-River program as a co-sponsor of the stretches of the Santa Fe River in the County, passed a Resolution at their February 9th meeting which recognizes the important role the Santa Fe River played in shaping the character of Santa Fe. In recognition of the important community treasure that is the Santa Fe River, the Santa Fe Board of County Commissioners issued a Proclamation naming February 13, 2010 as 'Love Your River Day'.

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.
