2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
I connected with Asha at Pacific Domes many years ago, and as I learned more about Ashland the more I wanted to live there, so now I will be moving to town in November to get my White Tiger Farm established on land near town.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
As a Vietnam vet, after my military service I focused on finding solutions to end conflict and mindless wars for profiteering corporates and elitist / globalist interests who have raped and pillaged for far too long. I will showcase new tech and materials to provide abundant clean energy, food and water production, as well as eco-friendly materials for construction and fabrication to the Ashland community, and nearby communities. I will also be busy building a natural rubber production capacity for our country that now imports it from Asian sources, it's predicted that we will have a shortfall of 1.5 million tons of natural rubber by 2020. Building an ecological civilization, at least a local model, meshed with Steampunk style.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
Being able to show people that we can co-create the means to provide clean energy, food and water, as well as affordable, eco-friendly housing for all people, in every nation, including our own.

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.
After decades of earnest public-information campaigns, Americans are finally recycling. Airports, malls, schools, and office buildings across the country have bins for plastic bottles and aluminum cans and newspapers. In some cities, you can be fined if inspectors discover that you haven’t recycled appropriately.
The bee population is shrinking. But this duo is saving them. Stuart and Cedar Anderson spent a whole ten years trying to figure out how to harvest honey without disturbing bees. Their solution was an Indiegogo-funded invention called Flow Hive that replicates a real beehive without putting the bees at risk when you harvest honey. The Flow Hive allows the honey to flow out of the hive straight into a jar without crushing or disrupting the bees inside. What a brilliant design!
