recommended resources



-- Quote of the Day -- 


“There is a real competition between our energy needs and our need for healthy soil. …Whether that cellulose goes into the energy stream or whether it will be processed by microorganisms and builds healthy soil – is going to be both a marketing and regulation issue. …we are not saying that we don’t aren’t going to want to transition to bio energy because that is what green energy is, in addition to solar and wind. …Methane is a natural gas, as opposed to ethanol and alcohol in its liquid form. I like this option because we can produce it from plants and organic waste. There is no magic bullet (when it comes to global warming and managing organics) – but there might be magic buckshot solution… because there is a lot of different opportunities here.”

How On Earth: "...started by Margie and Michael Baldwin in 2007.  As founders of the Marion Institute, they were keenly interested in sustainable communities and the role that food and local farming played. The original concept was to have a CSA ( where shares of local produce are picked up by shareholders on a weekly basis) provided by a local farmer and to use the store as a pick up site.  As interest grew and others wanted fresh food, more products were provided and a kitchen was added to make our own food. Today we have a full range of local, organic produce, locally sourced grocery items, bulk liquids and dry goods, gluten free, vegan and non GMO foods.
