What can you do to foster sustainability in your city, county and state? The simple answer is: get involved. Those dull-sounding local and state agencies are public bodies, responsive to the voters. You can (and should!) run for your city council, county board, and state legislature. Equally important, you can (and should!) organize others in your community to educate and lobby for action.
We are working on a series of community organizing guides. Highlighted titles are available now. The others will appear shortly.
You say your goal's more modest? How about planting a tree in your community? Our special abridged edition of Tree People's Citizen Forester may be just what you're looking for.
