    How might spending more time outdoors enhance your brainpower?

    Feels good to get to know your backyard better. Makes your feel connected and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

    What would a sustainable water future in your region look like? What needs to change?

    We need less decorative plants that have no use as food or healing. People need to have less lawns and less big bushes that become a fire danger when they get bigger and are neglected.

    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reusable one, but it's just hard to make the switch. What stands in your way of making this a habit? By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Gotta bring a backpack or  bigger bag with reusable stuff in it so it's always there at the ready. The bag I have is too small to hold everything. Didn't have my mug today but I had my bamboo utensils so I did use that.

    I remember in the early 90' when Santa Cruz was in water saving mode because of that drought we took 20 minute showers now it's 5 minutes maybe we can get it down to 2 and a half next.
