"And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit, And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching." Kahlil Gibran

Our kitties Tiger, Chester and Grillo. Since 2000, the farm has provided energy conservation education as a community service. Basil Brook is one of the first wildcrafting organic farms in the State of New Jersey
The farm's passive solar home has solar hot water system and a recently expanded, grid tied, photovoltaic system provides electricity. A passive solar potting shed had been the most resent addition to the farm.
The design and construction of the ENERGY STAR, active/passive solar “green” building/home serves as an education tool. The League of Woman Voters, NESEA Groups, The Hunterdon County Parks Department, Congressman Rush Holt, Architects, contractors, individual home builders, and college students, have attended energy education tours at Basil Brook. Off site energy education is also provided throughout New Jersey.

Drivers Now Have Quick-Charge Coverage From Washington To California
About the American Solar Energy Society
These new quick-charge stations complete the Oregon portion of the West Coast Electric Highway with five new locations:
- Southeast Portland Burgeville
- Woodburn Elmer’s Restaurant
- Clackamas Town Center
- Wilsonville Town Center
- Shari’s Restaurant in Keizer
The West Coat Electric Highway connects British Columbia to Baja, California along the I-5 corridor. When fully completed, the Highway will span 1,300 miles and have public quick-charge stations every 25 to 60 miles.
These five latest charging stations added to the Highway were installed as part of a pilot program led by Portland General Electric (PGE) in an effort to complete the Highway in Oregon, and used Blink DC Fast Chargers manufactured by ECOtality.
“Through the EV Highway pilot, PGE is working with our customers along the interstates who want to host charging stations and charging station manufacturers that want to install them,” said Kurt Miller, PGE’s director of business model and program development. “These two new stations close the gap between quick-charge stations along the interstate system making the West Coast Green Highway a reality in Oregon.”
“We are very excited to be partnering with PGE in completing this stretch of the I-5 corridor,” said Amy Hillman, ECOtality area manager. “Completing this project is yet another step forward boosting drivers’ range confidence and enabling them to use their EV as their primary vehicle, while providing them with the benefits of fast charging that more closely reflects their lifestyle.”
The charging stations along the Highway are located at places where you can also grab a cup of coffee, shop, or even grab a meal before continuing on your journey

Red CloverBotanical Name
or LEGUMINOSAE Pea Family
Herbal Remedies using : Red Clover
, garden peas, beans
exert a weak estrogenic effect due to their ability to bind estrogen receptors. This is of special interest to women
in relieving the symptoms of menopause
and providing protection againstosteoporosis
by helping to maintain bone density. These compounds have shown promise in studies for their protective effects against cancer of
the breast. 1
Red clover maintains a strong following among traditional herbalists as a blood purifying depurative that has been used safely and effectively for hundreds, if not thousands of years in clinical practice. Red clover has been used traditionally to treat respiratory and skin problems such as cases of childhood eczema, and can be effective for other chronic skin conditions as well. 2

Nestled in the historic district of Hartford, Connecticut, the Miller residence offsets approximately 70% of their yearly electricity costs with their 4.5 kW Solar Array installed by Alteris in 2009. The install features two mounting systems: Sun Frame on the fount of the house and Solar Mount on the back. The Miller residence is enabled to be net-metered, meaning that when the system produces more electricity than is being consumed, excess electricity is fed back to the grid for credit. Although many homes in their neighborhood are limited by the shading from older trees, the Miller's have high hopes that more will soon "go solar."
There is yet another wonderful site in Waitsfield, Vermont.
Maclay Architects, environmental design leaders in Vermont for more than 37 years, have gone solar with their dual purpose carport and 17.55 kW solar array. This unique installation was made possible by the USDA Rural Development and Green Mountain Power. The office has achieved net-zero with the addition of the carport array and their existing 2 kW tracker and air source heat pump.
And don't forget New York!
Third Street in New City, New York is on it's way to becoming the "greenest" street in the Hudson Valley. Two businesses on this street, Alteris Renewables Inc. and Michael Shilale Architects, recently completed upgrades to improve their energy efficiency.

Solar & Wind Could Power All of the U.S. by 2026
by Brian Merchant, Brooklyn, New York
The American public's relationship with clean energy is complicated: Polls consistently show that we overwhelmingly want more of it. The majority of Americans want the government to invest in clean power research and to create jobs in the industry. Yet at the same time, there's a pervasive sense of "we're not there yet" with technologies like solar and wind.
Which is why, if I could choose to have one message unambiguously made clear to the public -- like, maybe, dragging the world's largest airplane banner (towed behind a giant, emissions-free electric plane, of course) across the nation -- it'd be this: We are there. Right now. If we start deploying solar and wind to scale right now, we could run all of the U.S. on clean energy by 2026.
From Energy Self-Reliant States
(via Climate Progress
): "The Germans have installed over 10,000 megawatts of solar panels in the past two years, enough to power 2 million American homes (or most of Los Angeles, CA). If Americans installed local solar at the same torrid pace, we could already power most of the Mountain West, could have a 100 percent solar nation by 2026, while enriching thousands of local communities with new development and jobs."
And what might that look like? ESRS continues: "The following map shows what could have happened had the U.S. kept pace with Germany on solar power in the past two years (installed the same megawatts on a per capita basis). Sunshine could power 10 states!"
The report makes the point that most of Germany's solar expansion hasn't been in huge, centralized plants -- it's been with distributed solar projects like rooftop installations. Which means the projects have been uncontroversial and have had minimal impact on the environment (no desert tortoises imperiled, in other words). We can do this too. Check out Energy Self-Reliant States' breakdown of what percentage of each states' power can be generated by rooftop PV:
That's a lot of headway that can be made on idle, currently unused spaces. Paired with the deployment of wind farms along our coastlines, across the Great Plains, and in Texas, and some central solar generation -- potentially, large-scale concentrated solar projects -- we absolutely can run the nation on clean energy. Within our lifetimes. We just need more shouting from the (soon-to-be-covered-inPV) rooftops to get the word out to Americans that it can be done.

Wind Wisdom for School Power Naturally
Two curricular units: K-4 and 5-6
Lesson 2: The Electrical Generator, excerpt from background information: "A generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy through electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction occurs when a coil of wire experiences a changing magnetic field, which causes a voltage to be induced in the coil. This effect was discovered in 1830 by the English physicist Michael Faraday and is known as Faraday's Law. Faraday discovered that moving coils of wire and magnets past one another would generate an electric current in the wire. This ability to generate electricity from coils of wire and magnets is the basis for most modern electric power generation. In modern generators, coils of wire and a set of blades are connected to a common shaft. The wire coils, which are placed inside a ring of magnets, are spun when the blades are turned with an external energy source such as water heated by burning fossil fuels, high-pressure steam, falling water, or wind."

The Solar Sails New York program is sponsored by NYSERDA & the School Power...Naturally program.
Workshops are designed to help prepare educators in leading middle school students through Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) and are free to teachers & non-formal educators throughout the Northeast.
Through hands-on experimentation, students learn how to design, build, and race model solar cars and tackle issues in the engineering process, properties of materials, forces and motion, electricity and magnetism, ratios and geometry.
These young engineers deepen their understanding about solar energy, math, physical science and craftsmanship.
Teams who decide to race and win the opportunity to participate in the Northeast Championship need to know their car well, present it to various judges, and be capable of responding and adjusting their vehicle to conditions and demands at the site. This past year that meant adjusting to indoor conditions. For the first time in over seven years, the Northeast Championship was held inside in a gymnasium due to rain. Watch the documentary
