RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Most of the discussion I see about green building concerns new buildings. I know that some old buildings are simply unsalvageable -- I have friends who are deconstructing a disaster of a house they bought, which is occupying a perfectly wonderful solar site. They intend to build a passive solar house on the site, and recycle most of the old materials right there. But many of us have to work with what we have. At SolWest Fair in John Day this summer, we are emphasizing creative solutions for people with a desire to live responsibly but not a lot of cash. I hope people will take advantage of our 50 workshops on all kinds of syustainable living skills, and come out to join the SolWest community. www.solwest.org
