Hi Gina - this is Mera, I'm in the initiating group and saw your email
below. Our main goal up to earth day this year is the creation of the plan,
and some assistance to the implementers of the plan. TN can either start a
working group on the subject, or support existing groups in the community.
Right now, the group ReNew Northfield is about local energy, and could
probably use some new members.
The part you are interested in - interviewing elders - may not be a focus
of the renew Northfield group but I am not sure. I can think kfz two
possibilities for getting started: the Foxfire series at the library, and
local KYMN interviews with older people from this region. What are your
thoughts on how you would like to proceed? -Mera.
