Saturday Green Links – 5/21
The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education highlights the work of Harvard’s Sustainability Office. Berklee could really take a page from their book.
- Campus Sustainability Case Study Highlights: Harvard Green Office Program – AASHE. This program is a great model for the rest of us.
- The Age of Anthropocene: Should We Worry? – New York Times. I love that two of the debaters quote Stewart Brand: “We are as gods and might as well get good at it.”
- Two Ways to Approach a Deep Energy Retrofit of a House – Green Energy Maine. A really in-depth talk from Peter Troast of Energy Circle.
- Locavore: Eat local (on your way home) – Boston Globe. New farmers markets at highway rest stops in Massachusetts.
- Raised-Bed Garden – YouTube. A time-lapse video on raised-bed construction. (Thanks, Mike!)
- Local Food Time: CSAs, Markets, Yogurt – Farm Share Stories. I’m really looking forward to my CSA this year.
- Learning About Sustainability – Sprouts of Hope. This Cambridge middle school group is an offshoot of Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots program
- Alternatives to Clothes Dryers – Green Building Advisor. I’d never even heard of drying cabinets before.
- Best Way to Boil Water – Home Efficiency Blog. The microwave is the least efficient way to boil water.
- The Cause of Rising Food Prices, and How to Beat Them – Sound Money Matters. Aryn’s solution: Buy local.
- E-Books Outsell Print Books at Amazon – New York Times. It’s about time.
That’s all for now. As always, if you find anything interesting this week, send it my way.
