Sustainable living can be done

To the Editor:

Even a couple of weeks after the event, I’m still pumped about the sustainable living fair organized by Seedcorn at the Cooperative Extension Learning Farm in Canton.

What a great day, and I thank the organizers, the busy St. Lawrence County transit shuttle drivers, and the many volunteers and exhibitors. The fair should become an annual event.

There were lots ideas and techniques for living light on the land on display, mostly by fellow North Country people, which I appreciated.

As a village resident living on an eighth of an acre of my wife’s flower beds and my weedy grass, I do feel challenged as to how a villager can incorporate what I saw displayed and described. But I can try; now I know how. What I learned above all is that we must learn to live more sustainably, and that we can.
