Sustainability Roundtables

SCAN Fairbanks has been sponsoring a series of community roundtables on sustainability in the Fairbanks area. The next one is in Ester, at the Ester Volunteer Fire Department on the evening of March 1, Saturday, at 6 pm, I think. (I'll check and amend this later tonight if need be.)

Mike Musick will be presenting The Natural Step for Communities.

ADDENDA: the meeting starts at 5 pm!

Last Frontier Locavores

I discovered this interesting website the other day: Last Frontier Locavores, a Wetpaint wiki for those attempting to eat locally. It's just started up, about two-three weeks ago, and seems so far to be focused on the Fairbanks area. I'm not sure how widespread they want to go with it--Tanana Valley or all of Alaska?

At any rate, this effort fits right in with community economics and sustainable agriculture, and I thought it might be of interest to Greens in the Interior.
