GrapeThinking

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

This video is a compilation of my harvests in the agroturismos of Italy, the desert of Argentina, and the sunshine of northern California. The music is one of my favorite songs of all time, it’s called Voyageur by Enigma. I moved out to California a year ago with a bottle of GrapeThinking, a bottle of ideas I guess you could say, that started filling up 5 years ago with conversation between myself, Jacob Bohall, Ruarri Rogan, Meghan O’Malley, and many others. Over the past year, those ideas have delightfully fermented, and the time has finally come for us to have a taste…

Nature to the Grid: Urban Farming

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

This is a follow up on the theme I wrote a few posts for last year (see below for links). This one was sparked when I met with a friend of mine, Daron Joffe aka FarmerD, the other day in Berkeley. He’s a dynamic farmer developing sustainable environments. Gardens, farms, communities, and now urban farming projects. Urban gardens and farms are a strong contributor to the ‘greening’ of our cities. A functional aesthetic.

Breaking Sustainability down into Markets

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

I’m always talking about , and as awesome as it is to ponder how it will save the planet and create a spiritual transcendence and all that good stuff that makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside, I thought it’d be smart to put a practical edge on the whole thing by taking a look at the actual markets that make up (lifestyles of health and sustainability) and what type of numbers are behind them. This movement is growing fast and is creating incredible value in our . I believe it will gradually work it’s way into every imaginable vertical and serve to harmonize the into a holistic transcendence beyond capitalism. My friend Lee and I like to call it as I’ve mentioned in past posts. Here’s a breakdown of the current markets of the “sustainable economy”, what products and services they offer, and which ones are growing fastest.

How to Drink Enjoyably During a Recession?

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

With the way the economic status of America is heading, extra indulgences in life are far from being enjoyed. Amongst this is of course . As we all know is not cheap. If you are able to get a cheap bottle then drinker beware, for most of what is out there is not great quality. I have found myself drinking more South American and Australian. These wines, you are going to find affordability as well as drinkability. If you want a French or Italian then you just need to know what you are looking for.

Nature to the Grid: Renewable Homes

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I’d like to propose a new idea.

The green movement has no doubt tipped into the public’s consciousness, and yet still hasn’t been consolidated into a feasible, economic starting point. I attempted to unify the myriad of and consumption/waste innovations in my last post with the concept of ‘’, and will now attempt to expand on it further. The question is where can the average person start incorporating this concept into their life to not just benefit their ecolistic mentality and environment, but to save and make more money?

In continuance of our nature to the grid dialogue, I’ve come to the conclusion that it starts, from both an ecological and economical standpoint, with people taking a proactive role in turning their home into a renewable power station… turning their home into a ‘tree’ if you will.
