What is this blog about?
It’s about wishing to live in a clean and healthy place.
What does that mean?
It means banning using toxic chemical pesticides and herbicides on lawns and gardens. We are a town with many motels; a number of these have lawns where kids play and adults stretch out enjoying the ocean and their summer freedom.
We are a small town where anything people put on their lawns and gardens eventually finds its way down to the sea. Thus, everyone’s home or business is, in a sense, a waterfront place.
How did we do that?
That is one question. Others I will look at are:
How do we protect our popular barrier beach and ensure its cleanliness for beach goers?
How do we protect our fragile wetlands behind our beach?
How do we nourish a healthy lawn and garden without toxic chemicals?
How do we look at the wholeness of a Maine town through the year?
When I became chair of the Ogunquit Conservation Commission, I worked with a talented webmaster and we created a new website where I have been writing weekly blogs for some time.
So how am I looking at ‘organic’ here? I see ‘organic’ as characterized by a harmonious relationship between the elements of a whole.
Tune in weekly – I would appreciate your thoughts and ideas.
