  SJ member Meg Kelly's blog covering activities at her family's High Meadow Farm CSA is always a good read!

SJ member Ben Nelson has posted a great sustainability tip at http://ecorenovator.org/ for conserving water and saving money with only 5 minutes of work!

In its January 2010 issue, TPO - Treatment Plant Operator™ Magazine has published an interview with SJ member Peter Hartz, describing how the Johnson Creek Waterworks is working with local farmers and Sustain Jefferson in finding new uses for biosolids produced at the plant, including use as a fuelstock for gasifiers. Click here to view the article that covers how Hartz and the Community-Supported Energy Group are exploring the possibilities.
