Concrete & Weeds: Ecology Lost and Found
is the overbuilding of suburbia threatening the survival of the planet? are concrete flow lines
a good substitute for small creeks.
can native weed species help protect the suburban environment from water and air-borne pollution?
should municipalities be guided by BMP's (best management practices) ?

once a suburban watershed is degraded it is quite easy for developers to further destroy
any hope of salvaging whats left. " Hey, it was a crumbing little silted in nasty ditch... " more sidewalks more pavement ,more curbing more impervious concrete leaves ground water re-charge completely out of the loop..
what are you going to drink now?

oil of lemon eucalyptus

oppgansag ---blog me
even a bird lives free somewhere
are we not smarter than gulls?
maybe not you say.....
so what sort of village do we want?
we've dissed a lot of the past
do we have a right to keep anything we enjoy/

smaller roads fewer people
better goods
why do we settle so often for the mundane??

what's wrong with traveling by train? nothing, i say
simple real wooden chairs
and tables
eating out of doors
in fresh air and sunshine
walking for rest and fun
small roadside camping and hiking shelters for touring and visitors
with firewood and a roof
