Soil Generation: a Philadelphia-based Black and Brown-led coalition of gardeners, farmers, individuals and community based organizations working to ....
When one shops at Weavers Way on Tuesdays, they make it easy for you to make a small donation to a local organization. They call it "Two's-day", if you agree and don't change it, you add $2 to your bill. Last time I went through the drill, I gave 2 bucks to Soil Generation, which was off my radar. When I was quizical, the check out all-star handed me a handbill.

So hopeful: Natural Gas to our home, from Methane Capture!
For many years we have opted to pay a little more, to support 100% renewable electricity. We feel fortunate to be able to afford it, and it has felt good to do it.
In 2019, Weavers Way, our food co-op, posted a notice in The Shuttle, their weekly paper, that the Energy Co-op of Philadelphia (https://www.theenergy.coop/) was offering 100% methane capture gas service. (This, mostly from landfills now - but the dream is that down the line, meadows too, and more?)
The cost delta was about 20%, which can get hefty in the winter. After a conversation over the kitchen table, we decided to give it a go.
Think of it: no fracking, oil or coal.

If not, who could make it happen? Maybe you?
Tuning out of the Dems opening night, headed to bed. A lot moved me.
The closing: "and, performing on Monday night with Billy Porter, 75-year-old Stephen Stills, who wrote and originally sang the song they will perform together, Buffalo Springfield’s timeless 1967 anthem “For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey, What’s That Sound?)” - really fired me
I was between sophomore and junior year of high school the summer that Stills and Buffalo Springfield released that song, and caught the spirit of the time. It felt so resonant, we all felt so alive.
If you missed it tonight, track it down, turn the volume up, enjoy ... For What It's Worth. I cnat find tonight's version online yet, be sure to catch it
#voteblue2020 too "stop children what's that sound, everybody look what's goin down .."
