This sustainability thing is pretty cool. I’m doing laundry today and suddenly the ground by the fence started gurgling. I wasn’t really surprised to realize that the run off from the laundry is piped along the yard and released strategically to water the garden. This recycling of grey water is routinely used in the Turks and Caicos and Australia, but I suddenly wondered how many people in, say, New York were aware of this type of life style.
BioFour years ago I took an opportunity to work at a national museum in the paradise islands of the British West Indies. After a year working in archives across southern Australia, I'm in the desert of southern California working to develop a desert museum in the middle of the desert - the only educational institution within a 25 mile radius.
