  1. Hi Scott,

    Caught your presentation at the SolarFest in Vermont this past month and thought it was just great. You are a very engaging speaker. It was amazing the number of subjects you were able to address in such a short time period with, I think, just enought information to spur the interest of the audience to look into the subjects further.

    Live Well,

  2. Amazing! I am originally from Schenectady, NY and now living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, but heard about your organization through a Turkish Permaculture group. What a small world. Glad to have found you and interested to take a look at what you’re doing. Salam!

  9. Scotty and Tracy – great to keep up with your new activities and growth in the NE. Awesome work – congratulations on the new Radix Center and good luck. Your professional pedigree gets longer and longer – just great.

    We are watching you now from St. Petersburg, FL and a great senior condo overlooking Tampa Bay. getting into PC, local food, social justice, junior youth programs – trying to not be senior in spirit, energy, or actions/programs – trying to wear out vs rust out. I hope to see you at NOFA in August if our Martha’s Vineyard schedule permits.

    regards and best wishes
