Write legislation to promote permaculture, natural bldg, etc

If the attorney general's office approves this legislation to evaluate and set safe radiation standards (i.e. wireless, nuclear, other electromagnetic devices), then over 64,000 signatures will need to be collected to bring this bill to vote before Massachusetts people. I'm absolutely looking for help so please call if able--of course wireless makes me ill, so I hope that some reasonable policies and standards can be put in my place to protect everyone. While I was writing it, it occurred to me that it could be adapted to address many issues from pharmaceuticals to nanotech, but also that we need a bill promoting reduction of energy use with alternatives such as permaculture, local, cob building, etc. Aside from insuring wind turbines are designed safely, it is important to consider using less energy via our industries of choice. I think I could write a really good bill designed to shift away from energy demanding economies--but need some contacts or experts on alternatives. If anyone has any thoughts or experts or relevant organizations, let me know. So, contacts, etc., please send them along. Generally, natural building, natural medicines, and perhaps certain farming methods are all that come to mind, but local entertainment might be a consideration. Transport could be a consideration as well.

Support Building Yurts at Standing Rock, ND
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Hello Community! I am part of a team heading out from Western Mass/Southern NH to Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota to build yurts for the water protectors. We are in need of support, both financially & or with supplies. We will be building as many 25 foot yurts as our resources will allow. This will be imperative as warm spaces for people during the harsh conditions of North Dakota winter. Please read more about our project & share it with those you know! https://www.gofundme.com/yurt-building-at-standing-rock-nd Thank you!

Hi folks, I have a limited supply of chickens that I'll be processing Saturday July 8th. that will be available same day. They've been raised at a site I've been currently developing in Shutesbury using permaculture principles. The birds are healthy, moved to fresh forage daily, and fed organic feed. Price is $5/lb. Subscription sales are also available. Contact Matt by email if interested. [masked]
