Green space

As someone who grew up with a lot of green space as a kid, who use to play in the woods and stay outdoor every night until my mom called me in, it’s nice to see a city taking back some green space and a school yard is a great place to start. Add to the fact that Paris is one of my favorite European cities, it’s a very cool story.

So tonight’s article is entitled “Green Space in Every Schoolyard: The Radical Plan to Cool Paris” over at The Guardian. With a week full of parental school work now over, hopefully I will get back into my usual blogging routine next week. I might try and post again this weekend. We’ll see.

Sincerely-

Home sweet home

So our home isn’t as green as I would like it to be. I do try however, to do what I can to take of our small part of the earth. This weekend I’ve spent most of my time trying to clean and recycling as much as possible.

Along the way, I came across the article “Home Green Home” by Tara Ballenger in Mizzou, the quarterly journal I receive from the University of Missouri at Columbia, where I got my Masters in Library Science.

Anyway, it’s about six students in one old house with a mission to use less and conserve more. It’s articles like this that keep me motivated to do more in our home.

Sincerely-
