continued That sort of personal and community change is the focus of The Adirondack Green Circle who co-sponsored the event. “We are a grassroots community group tackling change in four arenas; local food, energy efficiency, overconsumption and waste, and self-reliance,” said Gail Brill, founding director of the Adirondack Green Circle. “We are about bringing the community together and to make the community a better place,”
To this end, the event featured several information tables on local community supported farms, public transportation, and home energy audits.
Jenkins said that these sorts of community movements give him hope about the issue. “The best things that I see are the growing awareness of kids in elementary schools and the action on high school, and college campuses,” said Jenkins.
