The Idea Garden
The Idea Garden, my company, is where I get to share connections, tools, and resources to assist socially conscious people as we work together to grow a better world. I plan to load this website with all sorts of useful things, from the practical (like guides and how-to’s) to the inspirational.
For more info on how The Idea Garden is working to grow a better world, hop on over here. To keep abreast of our latest additions to our collection of ideas and resources, add your name to our mailing list here.
Raising Elijah: Protecting Our Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis
This non-fiction book, by acclaimed biologist (ecologist) and poet Sandra Steingraber, PhD, is one of the best reads I’ve yet to come across. Steingraber’s memoir takes us through her journey of trying to protect her children–including her youngest child, Elijah, who suffers from asthma–while raising them in an era of toxic trespass.
If you ask me, this is a must-read for every elected official out there. It reveals what we, the people, have to deal with on a day-to-day basis as we try to raise our families as good citizens.
Moyers & Company
Just about anything by Bill Moyers, one of America’s preeminent journalists, is worth watching or reading. His latest television show on PBS, Moyers & Company, presents an alternative side to economic, environmental, and social issues that mainstream news outlets just don’t seem to want to cover. His website even has a Take Action page to help empower us.
World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)
Whenever there’s an earthquake, a flood, a volcanic eruption, a tsunami, a hurricane, a cyclone, or some other crisis, this organization helps rescue stranded and injured animals around the world.
