  1. The event went great. Here are some highlights.

    Questions with available answers (from me and Appropedia) were about:
    -rainwater catchment
    -vertical gardens
    -reducing meat consumption
    -how to catalyze diverse communities
    -buying local
    -lawns to food
    -wave/tidal power
    -passive solar design
    -greywater treatment

    Questions that need answers:
    -Squirrel abatement from fire escape gardens
    -diaper service vs store bought diapers
    -what is the vine hanging above my head
    -is there a company that makes a solar shade adjusted for latitude and passive solar design
    -is there any organic waste collection in New York

    New ideas!
    -rooftop PV systems for renters
    -Sustainability walk/open house weekend throughout New York
    -making windpower more beautiful by using a more organic, non-orthogonal, distribution
