Earth Day

  • No recycling robot ... KatieV can't make it to the event
  • Idea for how to use the first of the three panels (SolSeed with famous Apollo 17 photo of Earth)
    • It was taken from a spacecraft and inspired the environmental movement
  • Change of plans for the mural?
    • Kevin could draw an outline of an eco-village on the mural canvas and visitors could fill it in with paint
      • Make sure it includes the Portland skyline
    • Stack of paper and pens for people to draw what they do that brings life
  • Sign-up sheets should have options for Announcements/Newsletter e-list, eco-village planning e-list,book club, various projects such as beach & park cleanups

April Newsletter

Deleted two negative blocks and sent it out


If we were to post the video online, we would use YouTube, which is of course a streaming-only video site. In that case we would probably not make more than a few DVDs, but if we weren't able to put it online, a good ballpark figure for the next year would be 500 DVDs.
