Sustainable Living Community Events Update
Sustainable LivingJIM HIGHTOWER!

At the JFAN Annual Meeting, Wednesday, October3 "Jim has the rare skill of being able to get people from different perspectives to really listen and think about his ideas. His humor disarms opponents and his policy proposals inject a strong amount of common sense into debates that have become polarized by stereotypes." - Rural Sociological Society 

WHAT WILL IT TAKE?
