Letter: Join Hundreds of JP Residents at The People’s Climate March

Dear Neighbors,

Some of you may know me through my house, JP Green House. My family and I built one of the first “carbon neutral” houses in Jamaica Plain—rehabbing a hundred-year-old corner store in the Woodbourne neighborhood. With the addition of solar panels this year, we are now “energy positive”—the house creates more energy than it uses. We also grow all our own produce in our backyard organic garden. (You’re welcome to get the whole story on our website at JPGH.org.)

I created this project as a demonstration of how it could be possible to live on less, because I’m a climate activist, and I know that’s where we’re heading.
