>Author Vicki Robin (Your Money or Your Life) was in town for a lecture and stayed here at FrogSong last night. Today she facilitated a meeting of representatives from local sustainability organizations with the theme “Accelerating the Transition.” I graphically recorded the session and will post photos as soon as I get copies from the photographer (the always amazing Karen Preuss).

The various groups represented had a huge overlap in their missions; and one of the challenges/weaknesses many of them mentioned was burnout, not enough time, etc. At what point does it make sense to merge organizations? How many separate sustainability groups does one county need? How do we use our own energy in a sustainable way?
