The State of the Green

From eco-friendly building resources to political positioning and even sustainable hors d'oeuvres, GreenWest promises to define the state of "green." So let's all hop in our cars and drive to L.A. for the conference!

Seriously, I'm encouraged to see these issues reaching a critical mass, and if it were a little closer to home I probably would go. Now that the weather is sunny and warming it's easy to imagine photovoltaic panels on the roof, a solar water heater alongside, and low-flow irrigation throughout the landscape. Of course, our mulch is recycled cocoa shells, and we're watering our blueberries and fruit trees with harvested rainwater. Just don't forget your organic sunscreen when you're hand-weeding with your Hula Ho.
