Grok my Flock

The Nicholas School of the Environment is hosting the Flat Grok Video Contest.

We are on an unsustainable course. While world populations and consumption grow, resources diminish and global warming threatens our way of life.  In his blog The Green GrokDr. Bill Chameides, dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, elucidates causes of and potential remedies for environmental change and identifies pathways towards a more sustainable future.  And he wants to know what YOU are doing to create a sustainable future.

Dr. Bill can’t be in all places, so he wants you to videotape his representative, The Flat Grok, on the scene of your sustainable adventure.  Are you conserving water? Buying or growing local produce?  Changing out all of your lightbulbs to compact fluorescents? Biking to work?

You can check out the contest rules here.

Below is Bluegrass Blue Crab and my entry on raising backyard chickens.

 

  1. Cool chicken coup. I wish I had a yard. I only grow some tomatoes and peppers in a couple of trough-style planters on my concrete patio. (And I almost always eat all the tomatoes before I finish getting up my stairs!)
