Map to the Sustainable Gold! Part 2

All together now…  ”We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine…We all live in a yellow…”

I’ve embarked on this adventure that leads, I fully believe, to the promised land, the gold at the end of the rainbow, the treasure…Sustainable Urban Villages.  I bought this map from a guy in the alley…. the story unfolds from Part 1…

Yar Maties, we be in the hunt for the Sustainable Gold!

The Map, as best as I can read it,  says we’re starting with Stories from a Sustainable Future.

Over a short  meeting in Seth’s office, he offered to make Sustainable Urban Villages the theme of an entire issue (40 or 48 pages). I immediately saw the opportunity: we could get the word out across North Central New Mexico…  one of those “Yar Mates, thar she blows!” moments…

I’ve put a draft  of a brochure together. The front panel reads:
What if You Could Design Your Thriving, Alive, Resilient, and Sustainable Future?

What Would Make the Design of Your Neighborhood So Compelling, You’d Move In?!…

The idea of the brochure, is as I come across people who might want to submit their ideas,  I can leave them with some info, the guidelines and a reminder. And something they can pass on to a friend.

The submittal deadline is August 15, for articles and art work. Articles can be 800-1000 words long.  Another submittal opportunity is a “news bite”, a short item, or an excerpt, from a longer piece.

There is going to be an online component to this Sustainable Santa Fe endeavor.  Any overflow articles or the longer pieces of the excerpts, will post to

Another awesome idea popped up in my meeting with Seth. I can sell ads in the Sept issue, and make a commission. The  commission could help pay for the website! The brochure will also be a useful in getting the word out to advertisers !

So Maties! lend your efforts  and help the emerging sustainable economy…..emerge! Write up your compelling ideas and put an ad in the September Green Fire Times!  Together, we can make sustainable real! to be continued in Part 3
