What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

one more thing...

I made a 20$ micro loan to someone in Cote d'Ivoir today. I used MicroPlace and chose to invest my money with a woman. In return MicroPlace gave me a Green Fest t-shirt, a hemp wallet, and a ceramic piggy bank that they will send to Nina. Pretty good investment, the money is going to lift a woman out of poverty, and I will get the money back with a little interest (I chose the lowest interest available). Even if I never get the 20$ back I feel pretty good about it.
