Suggested Call to Action... email your county commissioners to BAN THE FREAKING FRACKING!
Email address:
Sample Email: Dear Boulder County Commissioners,
Today's Denver Post online article (shown below) should be carefully investigated by you, our elected officials, so that this doesn't happen to our Boulder County soil, air, water, aquifers, natural systems, children, families, workers, health, schools, homes, farms, animals, and property values. This predictable failure is completely unacceptable and the damage done is irreparable. This must be prevented from ever happening to our community and our county, along with the unintended consequences of this toxic industrial extraction process to our childrens' future. A permanent Ban on Fracking is the only solution to assure our health and safety in the future. Sincerely, Jane Q. Citizen

Mallard Ducklings

We have 4, week-old mallard ducklings that seek a good home.

They were hatched in an incubator from fertile eggs that we get from our flock.  They aren't sexed yet, so you won't know what you're getting.  I find duck eggs to be especially delicious & nutritious... better than chicken eggs.  And of course the 'lings are cuter than anything with two feet.  They're very comfortable with people, snuggly, but also squirmy.  They're also getting acclimated to our other adult birds.

$20 for all (too few to break-up), or trade me for something.

We should have another batch hatching at the end of the month too.  

Contact me if you're interested.  'Can possibly deliver (by bike).

Many people don't realize that the rights of those who use toxic chemical pesticides and herbicides in Boulder currently trump the rights of those of us for whom the words "local foodshed," "organic" and "permaculture" describe our vision of our best local food future.  Toxic chemical pesticide and herbicide use is still widespread in the City of Boulder, making truly organic gardening and urban farming challenging at best.   The City of Boulder is not allowed to ban pesticide use by residents under preemption by existing state statutes.  Please visit the Boulder County Sustainable Agriculture Forum at to join upcoming advocacy discussions on this and related issues.

Did you know GMOs are being grown on Bouler's open space public lands? Get details at 
Email the Boulder County Commissioners at   Express your opinion to them. Examples - "As a county resident, taxpayer, organic gardener and a Parks and Open Space bondholder, I object to the planting of GMOs on public lands. Let’s set an example and  plant only organic, non-GMO crops on public lands."

Also join over 1,000 others and sign the petition on line here -

Local Energy Presentation
Thursday 04/21, 6:30 PM
West Boulder Senior Center:

I quote from a flyer from Clean Energy Alliance:

Local Power, Local Control - Lessons from Around the World

The mission of the Institute of Local Self Reliance (ILSR) is to provide innovative strategies, working models and timely information to support environmentally sound and equitable community development. ILSR works with citizens, activists, policymakers and entrepreneurs to design systems, policies and enterprises that meet local or regional needs; to maximize human, material, natural and financial resources; and to ensure that the benefits of these systems and resources accrue to all local citizens.

Mr. John Farrell, senior researcher, focuses on aspects of community control of energy through the "New Rules Project" at ILSR which was started back in 1998. The New Rules Project brings fresh new policy solutions to communities and states to ensure that they are "designing rules as if community matters." Mr. Farrell's work has included studies on community solar power, energy self-reliance, the costs of nuclear power, and feed-in-tariffs. He is currently focusing on the job creation possibilities being driven by the feed-in-tariff policies in Ontario, Canada.

Maybe see ya there!
