Educator Comments:
I am a student at Quail Valley Middle School. I participated in your video conference. Thank you for showing us your home. It is very admirable that you take so many steps to preserve the environment in your everyday life. The video conference inspired me to do those little things that keep our planet inhabitable. Thank you! Tommy

I'm e-mailing you to thank you. You taught me that it is possible to make a totally ecofriendly house. You've inspired me to create a worm farm and make garden compost. Thank You, Tharen.

Thank you for telling us about your worm farms and the bioshelter! I thought that was so cool! I learned a lot about the toilets and the worms.
