West Coast Update
Our daily update from Timberland Earthkeeper Sandy McDowell, halfway through her week of community service and revitalization in West Oakland, CA:
Yesterday we installed solar panels on two houses in West Oakland. The company we worked with is called Grid Alternatives: they supply the solar panels and we install, with their help. I talked to a neighbor who said it reduced his electric bill to 8 dollars a month! We will finish that job today, and tomorrow we are building raised garden beds in West Oakland for City Slicker Farms.
I have met some awesome people in the neighborhood who are passionate for a better life. Can’t wait to share all of those stories.
