Thanks to Greenpeace for the image!
Conserving water has already been happening - conservative fixtures and the homemade rain barrel have helped a great deal. We'll step it up with some rain gutter additions and another rain barrel or two.
The electric bike, the non-electric bike, and the bike trailer will help with petroleum reduction.
And the carbon thing - well, that's an area where we definitely need to step it up.
On Treehugger today, a great article appeared that explains the impact a garden can have on CO2 levels. And I am feeling pretty inspired in that direction. Check it out for yourself. I hope you find it as inspiring as I have.
Treehugger: Your garden eats carbon (so please feed it well!)
Along these lines, I hope to be posting more carbon reduction and gardening articles. I invite you to join me in gardening and cleaning up our acts this season!
On a more personal note, our family landscape has changed. There's a six-year-old whirlwind moving to town, and I am hoping to turn him into a junior backyard-farmer. I hope to share our adventures with you as well.
May we all chip in to make this world a very liveable place, and may you know peace.
