ex machina

organic valley on-farm sustainability, courtesy of the wind.

cropp cooperative/organic valley's on-farm sustainability efforts aren't limited to sunny fields of sunflowers which get turned into turned into biodiesel. we're also helping producers put wind turbines on their farms that generate renewable energy for operations.

it was a pleasure and a privilege to be able to get out and watch the culmination of many folk's efforts with the raising of the turbine on mark and jen shepard's farm in richland county, wisconsin, even if it was a blustery afternoon.

then again, that's the perfect weather for generating renewable energy :-)

organic valley farmer/owners mark and jen shepard pause for a moment during the excitement of raising the wind turbine.

like all our producers, they're super nice folks with a pretty neat story.

I work for a progressive university with pretty deep pockets and they just installed two turbines on top of the parking garage next to my building. I couldn't believe that the two turbines are expected to provide only 5-10% of the energy for the garage (just the garage!).

How much will your turbine provide?

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
