Introduction It's a play on Grandpa, and green, as in environmentally aware, and Pa, as in ... Pa. An actual grandpa twice, and a Pa three times. 67, kids from two marriages, currently with an 11 year old infesting the house. The house is as advertised, a very small log cabin in the woods. Tiny. It's like living on a yacht; no closet space, which is maybe half of why #1 went away. I've been living "ultra" green for 37 years. Off the grid always, business too. Electricity from solar; and a little gas backup in winter. Composting toilet, big garden, heat with wood. Not vegetarians; hunter/gatherer/gardener. Not opposed to people living in cities. Good health; bad health. Good times, bad times. Poverty, intentional and not. Great friends. Unfriends. The good news: STILL living Ultragreen. It can be done. I'll talk about how here; including towns and cities. Education: MS and an "ABD" (all but dissertation of a PhD), in Biology. Focus: evolutionary ecology, botany, genetics, parasitology, mammalogy, behavior, ethology, psychology, language,... marketing. No, really, and I left some out, because you won't believe me anyway.
Interests Life, The Universe, and Everything.
