Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, July, 2009
News and Views from Asheville's Greenolina, Real Estate Eco-Steward
Do real estate professionals wish to support and/or help as people restructure neighborhoods, towns and the larger community? Many will say that they do, and in genuinely new and liberating ways. "We cannot do so just by the decree of law. Instead, we can look closer to home, with ourselves, our personal integrity, our own energy, " they might tell you.
In other words, all of us have to become ourselves, whole and healthy individuals. We have to think for ourselves, take good care of ourselves emotionally and physically, and follow our purpose in life -(see earlier post in this series.)
I am excited about the members like DAVE ROBERTS of the Eco-All-Stars Groupwho are reaching out to their colleagues and the public to demonstrate eco-friendly remedies and their understanding of healthy choices in properties and lifestyles.
Dave created the graphic here. This JULY, in a series of posts, we celebrate contributions of our own Eco-All-Stars by highlighting posts they have written.
Today we celebrate: DAVE ROBERTS.
At his kindergarten class in St. Cloud Minnesota they had Lincoln Logs big enough to build kid sized houses, and he did. At the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden project he graduated to real-sized building blocks and learned how to build post and beam framed buildings with hand tools.
In the thirty years since he learned to appreciate grain, texture, and a sharp saw, he has designed and built solar homes, consulted with the California Energy Commission on energy efficiency, and lived a second life as a computer consultant and web guru.
Through it all, appropriate technology and smart design have played a key role in the projects he undertakes.
Says Dave, " The world confronts huge opportunity and disaster simultaneously today. If we choose the smart path of recycling, conservation, renewable energy, and smart urban planning our children will inherit a healthy, vibrant planet. Every day each of us makes choices to be smart or to fall back on old habits and easy ways of doing things. It's a great time to be alive...and choosing."
