A season with Early Morning Farm’s CSA

Last night I stopped by my local drop point and picked up our final three-quarter bushel box of vegetables from Early Morning Farm (EMF). A farm share is an investment, but this definitely turned out worth it. If you're not familiar with farm shares, here's the deal. You sign up for the season, and you […]

When did DIY become a thing?

I was out in the backyard folding some tarps and looking at our (once again) overgrown lawn when I had this thought. When did DIY become a thing? Didn't it used to be that most projects were DIY? This is the time of year for reflection for those of us ascribing to the Jewish calendar. […]

The future of human-susatainable design

If you've spent 35 minutes driving three-quarters of a mile along Bridge Street in Syracuse the past 18 months, you've probably found yourself just putting your car in park on a 4-lane road to save yourself the over $4-a-gallon gas. From what I understand, it really has been a bad scene over there. I say […]

Get Discounted Tickets to Buy Local Bash

The Buy Local Bash is coming up on Monday of next week – that's November 21 – after work at Benjamin's on Franklin (it used to be Ohm for those of you who have been here a few years; Styleen's Rhythm Palace for those who have been here a few more). The event kicks off […]

Why I’m working with the Future Fund

Most of us will never be philanthropists on the scale of Bill and Melinda Gates. The foundation model – one in which one huge donation gets an endowment together and the interest pays out grants (while the foundation continues to solicit donations to add to the endowment) – is changing, Katherine Fulton explains in her […]

Access to capabilities, energy use and cities

I own a drill. I've used it to mount a stereo and iPod charger below a kitchen cabinet. I also own a circular saw. It came with the drill. I've never used it. I have a lot of other tools that I do use, though some of them (like my chainsaw and my ax) are […]

American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure

Yesterday, a few of us from Civic Engagement volunteered at the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure. Diabetes isn't one of my primary causes, but my employer is a national sponsor, so I had easy access to the organizers. This is a really great event. Rather than a "simple" run or walk or ride, it's […]

Dey Centennial Plaza

I got a tour recently of the Dey Centennial Plaza. It's a group of buildings at the corner of Salina and Jefferson streets in downtown Syracuse. While the residential units are nice – hardwood floors, marble counters, lots of space, and nice appliances (stainless faucets, electric stoves and refrigerators; some of the units have wine […]

Visions of Utopia: Experiments in Sustainable Culture

Farmshed CNY

I had a chance last week to meet with Neil Brody Miller to talk about his new project, Farmshed CNY. Farmshed is an iPhone app (I'm hoping there's an Android app in the future) that lets you see nearby farms, farmers markets and locally-owned restaurants. The download times are getting faster (it's a fairly large […]
