    I want to learn more about lowering our impact on the planet.  Education seems to be the most logical first step to make a plan for our family and hopefully neighborhood/world future that I can actively participate in.  We have recently moved to a 1/2 acre lot partially surrounded by forest.  I would like to learn how to do the most with this land to support the ecosystem around it.
