Cultural Immersion Experience: Sustainable Living in Sadhana Forest, India
In Winter 2011/12 I spent a month living in an Ecovillage in Southeast India learning and practicing Low-Carbon Living and Reforestation methods. As part of this experience I helped to construct a water conservation Gabion in order to reduce run-off in the recovering forest. I also helped to organize and carry-out environmental disaster clean up after the area was hit by a typhoon.
As a member of the Bomber Bikes bicycle advocacy group at Ithaca College I have participated in many activities to encourage cycling in the campus community. We hold bike-related events such as group rides and repair workshops, advocate for new bicycle infrastructure (like our brand new covered bike shelter!) and are working to start a bike-share soon.
