I spent the weekend hanging out with friends in Vermont. It was a very welcome break after an incredibly busy and productive start to the semester. I got to spend time with my good friend and neighbor and many of her friends in central Vermont including long-time energy activist, Barry Bernstein who is the President of the Board of the Washington Electric Co-op. He has dedicated his life to the clean energy movement and is one of the environmental heroes of Vermont. You can find out more about the electric co-op here.
We also got to hang out with the owners of Hollister Hill Farm, a totally green farm that focuses on humanely raised meat and locally produced vegetables. They also have a B and B. You can find out more about the farm here. The owners have a pretty amazing story. They left suburban New Jersey decades ago to return to the land to try to live a simpler life. They run their farm largely on solar energy--in Vermont. Just sayin' Florida.
It was a great weekend!
