• Two Great Green Events in Santa Fe this Weekend!

    My friend and fellow water harvester Brad Lancaster will speak at Santa Fe Greenhouses at 10am and 2pm tomorrow (Saturday, February 20). A very entertaining speaker, Brad is the author of two excellent books, “Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volumes 1 & 2.” It’s $7.50 at the door, but after the five-buck rebate from the nursery, it’ll seem like $2.50. Since I’ll be picking Mom up at the airport, I won’t be able to make either talk, but Melissa and I do look forward to seeing Brad—he’s staying with us while in town, so we better be. Tonight we’ve got a totally slow-food meal planned featuring elk meatballs from a friend’s hunt, scarlet-runner beans from our garden, and arugula salad from Camino de Paz School and Farm. Check back tomorrow for specific info about the farm school’s open house THIS Sunday, from 1pm – 4pm!

    Love your blog Nate!
    We just moved into our new house in Morro Bay, CA and are excited to say we have the first legally permitted residential grey water system in the county. Slowly doing the landscaping - starting to plant a few vegetables, dreaming about our organic avocado, lemon and apple trees (to start with a few) soon to come.
    Would love to host you along the road of your book tour!
    Love Nicole and Brian

  1. Congrats on getting that permit for your greywater system! We look forward to checking it out some time later this year. All the best,

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.
