Ep 109: Eco-News To Possibly Use

We spend the first chuck of the show talking about the trap of culture war and social media outreach. A warning that the alternative is canvasing in person. We share news of pipelines getting held up and stopped by courts, And cover some positive climate stories in New York and in Africa. In the 2nd half we talk about a house made of hemp while discussing the impact of elevators. Read a history and essay about black urban farming paired with the growth of new gardens in the past year, and end with a video produced with the visioning project called the ‘Years of Repair’.
