Thanks for the info... Another good book is Year round Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers for Metro Houston by Bob Randall. Get it at Urban Harvest. The word is spreading... More people will be looking for ways to be sustainable as times get tuff. With the increase of gas prices people are starting to make better decisions. Bob's book is good in that it gives information about many local venues so it takes the guess work out of where to find things and you can save a lot of time and aggravation. Nothing like learning from experienced people. The starngest thing is happening to me. People from in and out of state somehow get my name and want information about anything renewable. I just reffer them to the Hreg site and tell them to sign up. Spread the word..... and they will come!

Subject: [hreg] Congratulations to local authors and celebrities - Skotty andStacey of the Rhizome - on the arrival of their new book!
Date: Saturday, June 28, 2008, 12:31 AM
It looks like a good book by a couple of local authors.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please go immediately to http://radicalsusta inability. org/rust/ toolbox, preview the Toolbox for Sustainable City Living by Skotty Kellogg and Stacey Pettigrew, founders of Austin 's own Rhizome Collective. Then be the first on your block to have one - order it from Skotty/Stacey on the web-site - use the Permaculture concept of recycling resource (money) within the local economy instead of big box or big-web booksellers. While you are learning from the book, the Rhizome will be re-spending your money locally,.... and on and on it will go.
The promo says that it is a DIY guide for creating locally-based, ecologically sustainable communities in today's cities.....explains how urbanites can have local access and control over life's essential resources: food production, water security, waste management, autonomous energy, and bio-remediation of toxic soils....for people with limited financial means, the book emphasizes building these systems with cheap, salvaged and recycled materials when possible.... an essential tool for transitioning into a sustainable future threatened by the converging trends of global warming and declining energy supplies.
Thanks for listening - enjoy the book. It's for real, for Austin/Central TX, and priced right.
