Great Reading

It Has Been One Whole Year!


Hi everyone.  What a difference a year makes…. A year ago, you and I together started this website.  Can you believe it has been a year?  Your comments, emails, and participation help make this site an informative, supportive, and enjoyable community.  Thank you.

In case you haven’t read it before (or haven’t read it in a while), here was the first post:  Who We Are & Where We’re Coming From.  And our About page, where I dubbed this website a Meeting of Great Everyday Minds!

Since then I’ve created a page full of Recipes, and we’ve spent a lot of time discussing Community Building, Living Locallly, and Growing Food.  Not to mention the many, many personal changes we have all made as we Redefine Normal.


11,118 Comments.  241 Posts and Pages.  280,826 Visitors just since January, from almost every Country on the planet (113 different countries just in the last week). 

So what do you think?  Shall we continue on this journey together?

I would love to – how about you? If there is anything you are missing here at One Green Generation, please let me know – any constructive suggestions are welcome!

Thank you again for joining me on this journey!
