This blog is intended to spread the word about the project I have been working on for the last two years, The Tolman Guide to Green Living in Portland.

Do you want to learn how to eat organic in Portland on $7 a day? Ever wonder what happens to all that water that hits your roof and spills down the gutters? Do you want more resources for raising urban chickens? The Tolman Guide tells you how and what to do with all that water. The Tolman Guide is a guide designed to help the homeowner move away from harmful practices to the earth, to earth-friendly practices. Born from a Natural Resource Management class offered Spring 2006 from the Department of Geography at Portland State University, the Guide features 230 tips for the eager do-it-yourselfer.

The PDF is available online here or get a hard copy from Metro, Ecotrust, or the Office of Sustainable Development. Going green has never been so easy.

Either way, right now, there is no move for us.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
