…about the author.

I am a native Amelia Islander. This blog began as a way to write about a specific environmental concern and find an outlet for, I hope, positive ideas. Eventually the topics became more varied and cover anything from a new restaurant, to tax incentives for green construction.

Thanks for reading!
