Powerpoint about Fracking

The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) co-sponsored a webinar on 9/27 about fracking (high-pressure hydraulic fracturing to get natural gas from deep rock layers).

"Resources" ideas - please respond if you have thoughts

Mark & I were talking today about the "Resources" section of the site.

This is a very important section and it needs some more conversation as content is built over the next couple of weeks.

~ If you have thoughts, please respond to this blog post…
