Downtown Farm Reborn?

This is the Green Spot, a collaboration between Applied Solar and two local environmental groups. Only a few months old, the quirky little property is evolving into a vortex for all things local and green.

Three groups will unveil the Green Spot at the Good Old Days celebration. Fifteen booths, displays and demos will show locals how to shrink their eco-footprints by planting trees, building compost bins, installing solar-energy systems, setting up cisterns, cleaning green, curbing trash and auditing home energy use.

Can I get a tax cut for this? How much more would Jose the gardener charge to compost my lawn trimmings? Is cabbage resistant to deer and raccoon poo? Do you really think the weekender homeowners are really going to buy this? Judging by the mountains of trash the businesses create, it shows that they wont. Who’s left to join the compost club, the dozen or so frequent attendees to the city council meetings?Brevity Comic Hippie 080609
