Check out this week’s issue of The Free Weekly for a concept design of one acre for Making Ripples!
Ryan & I have been thinking hard since August 2011 about how to make the most ripples on a small piece of land. There are so many wonders to be created on just one acre for Ripples, if it’s healthy, protected and sustainable: native pollinators, trees, and wildlife; rainwater harvesting systems; technology that makes a difference globally; alternative power sources like solar panels; fresh organic vegetables and herbs; healing pathways through the forest, and much more! These are just ideas, but some of them are already alive and well: technology help for non-profits, our blog and column, a rain barrel, bicycles, and more. But we can’t make a more tangible difference in Northwest Arkansas without the land. Have you seen this acre? If so, let us know by emailing MakeSomeRipples@Gmail.com
