I just wanted to let you know I'm heading over to Cambodia for the next serveral months to work on wetland plant based water treatment systems with freshwater floating communites. This all came together just before I set out on the second half of my trip to NOLA. I want to invite you to follow along with my work in Cambodia and beyond by checking out www.banksofthebasin.com whenever you can. Leaving so quickly is going to delay my ability to send along photos and rewards from Banks of the Basin, but no fear I'll get them out as soon as I resettle back here this summer.
A happy and healthy New Year to you--and again thank you so much for believing in me and caring about this world.
“A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.”Wendell Berry
