Local strategies for a better world

If you’ve been reading the news at all, you’re pretty depressed about the state of our natural world. Bad news is coming from everywhere. It all seems so overwhelming, and you just want to ┬áhide in bed with a carton of ice cream until it’s all over.

Personally, I don’t think hiding from the problem is a good idea. It’s been my experience that when you spend a lot of time with your head in the sand, something always comes along and bites you in the ass. So I’ve been trying to think of ways to make things better, and my┬ásolution is to deal with the only part of the problem that I can realistically expect to change: me.

Let’s face it, I could do better.

So I’m rethinking everything I do, and looking for resources in Stratford, Ontario, where I live. Hopefully I’ll be able to tell you about it as I find them. Or maybe you’ll have some suggestions to send me through the contact page.

I am not going to raise sheep in the back yard and knit my own sweaters. I am not going to build a windmill on my roof. I refuse to eat tofu.

Otherwise, I’m listening.
