Silver Bullet Tiny House goes to 3rd Annual Massachusetts Tiny House Festival

September 23rd – 24th, 2017:  3rd Annual Massachusetts Tiny House Festival

Five years ago I was at one of Derek Diedricksen‘s first tiny house workshops. And four years ago Miranda was at one of my first workshops. I introduced them to each other and so it is only fitting that I complete the circle and retire from the tiny house festival circuit at their co-partnered event, the 3rd Massachusetts tiny house festival.

Please come out on the weekend of September 23rd and 24th to Trackside Plaza in Stoughton, MA.and see a dozen or more tiny houses on wheels!

Vera and the Silver Bullet Tiny House will be at the festival where she will speak about her sustainable tiny life. Bring your sense of humor and tiny house questions.

TerraBluTeams Practice #24

When I was two years old my mother gave me a colorful shiny pinwheel whose movement would captivate me for hours at the beach. That’s my first “energy” memory. Years later I understood that the invisible force behind its movement was the wind; an energy that could be harnessed.

Our society has made energy invisible. Most of us don’t visually see the gas we put into our automobile tanks, our released GHG emissions; and once home, we don’t see the electricity when we flip the switch turning on our lights, smart devices, and heat. And arguably, three decades ago, climate change and energy use were invisible to most of us.

Not any more. Today, energy use and climate change are two of the most important challenges confronting humanity.

The WHY:

Global energy use and the climate conversation are about choices, both individually and collectively. All of us are involved in that choice. And yes, each of our choices, collectively, will have enormous effects.

When we can make choices in an informed manner we can change the future to a more sustainable world for our children for generations to come.

The WHAT and HOW:

Increase awareness by celebrating Global Wind Day, (June 15th) and Energy Week in Boston, see you there!

Energy Week Boston kicks off this morning with participating groups raising awareness with events planned for the entire week that range from tours of the Deer Island Treatment Plant, the I.B.E.W Local 103 Wind Turbine, the sustainable JPGreenhouse, or lobbying your elected officials.
