Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

 This project never would have happened without Emily's persistence. She applied for this 3 year National Resources Conservation Service grant and purchased the plants, planned  the project areas, organized the planting of the hedgerows and this natural forest buffer along the creek. This is her with some manzanitas for along the border. Below are some of her friends and volunteers-- Sandra and Liz in the foreground on this shot.
 And this is another of Addie's friends from school, Emma.
 And Collin's mom from GRUB collective, Stephanie.
 And finally, the ever graying Riparia partners. I can't help but be grateful for being pulled into this project. It will be wonderful to watch everything grow, especially out in the back where the fire destroyed the grove of old trees. Thanks to all the good people who gave of themselves to restore this land.
