Sunday, September 26, 2010 - 7:40 am

Aired on WCKN, Time Warner Channel 30, at 7 p.m., Sunday and Monday, Sept. 26 and 27, Peak Moment guest host Ivey Cone has a conversation with Janaia Donaldson where you can peek behind the scenes at Peak Moment TV’s home base at the Lone Bobcat Woods homestead in California.

Janaia shows off their solar power system, woodstove for heat (and winter waffles), and super efficient refrigerator.

Choosing to reduce their footprint, she and Robyn Mallgren, Peak Moment videographer, don’t feel deprived at all.

Janaia discusses what led them to leave the Bay Area, what it’s like to live on 160 acres of forestland, which they’ve preserved “in perpetuity” as a wildlife sanctuary, and shows us some of the members of the natural community they live in.

The Peak Moment programs air every week at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday on WCKN, Time Warner Channel 30.

Peak Moment explores positive responses to energy decline and climate change through local community action.

Locally, the programs are underwritten by The Center for Excellence in Communication at Clarkson University and the Seymour Family of Potsdam.

In the weeks to come, WCKN will continue to air PEAK Moment TV shows.
