Sustainability on Parade, Sept. 24

29 Sep

We had 2 actions going for the 350.org Moving Planet day on September 24 and 25.

Sustainability on Parade happened on the West Side on the 24th.  We toured the LEED certified Sequoya Library and learned about its cool features.  The FORWARD! Marching Band led us in a rollicking parade from the library across Midvale Blvd. about 6 blocks to Orchard Dr.  There, we toured 7 homes or gardens of neighbors who are living sustainably.  We saw chickens, front yard veggies, rain gardens, bees, a Munchkin boiler (uber-efficient), a permaculture garden and orchard, and rain water harvesting of various sorts.

On Sunday, we got on our bicycles for the Permaculture Pedal.  We converged downtown for Ride the Drive, and then rode to St. Stephens Church in Monona, the Forest Products Lab, and the Russett Rd. neighborhood, where we visited permaculture gardens at a church, a business and in a residential setting.
