Got a Capturing Rainwater class set for Saturday - 1 p.m. at Hillside Community Center!
Much better use of that building, I must say! A big step in moving towards a resilient, local-food system. We're also working on a comprehensive plan... http://the4thwave.net/2014/07/06/food-futu…
One day, we hope to establish a sustainable farm where homeless and mentally ill people can live, work in the fresh air and get help. Let's call it "Sunrise Farm." The start will be (as described in this story) a "Sunrise Garden" project in Dorchester. If you'd like to help out financially or with time or expertise, email the Pikes Peak Justice & Peace Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
I was driven off the Gazette business desk 10 years after asking too many questions about the leadership of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce. The president at the time called my editor routinely to complain that I wasn't sympathetic enough. The Gazette prefers cheerleaders to reporters - got to keep those advertisers happy!
Maybe the city attorney is doing more homework. There will be a lawsuit if passed as written!
I hope a ballot initiative can be drafted that supports local control over many issues. For example, we need to look at Food Sovereignty ordinances as well. A broad local control measure would be better than a one-issue campaign, IMHO.
