Sustainable NE Skills Fair Video

A big thanks to Bill Aston for making a big effort into a big success. 


As I watched the video this morning it reminded me of the events we've staged over the past couple of years. Bill included scenes from most of them as back drop for the interviews. My reaction was "It's working! It's working!" We are involving people in events that are fun and productive on a personal level and a community level too. Combine this action with all the community and group action across the…

Herbicide Contaminants in Purchased Straw, Compost, Manure & Dairy Waste

Hello Tom,
My name is Jeff Lerner. I've recently joined NE Seattle Sustainable. The Dec. 16th Renewable Energy event caught my eye as I work in the industry and am very interested in the topic. As I haven't been to any events yet, I wasn't sure what direction the talk/presentation will go. However, I work for a small company in town called 3TIER and we estimate where the RE resource is best and provide real time forecast information for utils, financial industry, and energy balancing authorities. I'd love to talk to you and others about any local movement to get renewables on the RADAR in our local community. I gave a talk to the local WA chapter of American Solar Energy Society about a year ago about forecasting solar energy. Talk to you soon.
