  • Reflection Question
    Food Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    As a family we will be learning how to compost responsibly and utilize the compost in our gardens this spring and summer.

    My lease on my current vehicle is up this month. I have vowed to buy or lease a hybrid vehicle for my next car. I am currently exploring my options in this regard. Will share a pic of my choice once I’ve finalized my decision. Welcome experienced hybrid owners thoughts on their current vehicle. Excited to begin this challenge!! WTG Rhinebeck

      Hi Liz. We're on our third Prius and couldn't be happier. There are now several spots in the Village for charging so it might also be worth looking at an electric car.
