Hey Joseph
Do you have any info on ecological fluidized beds ?? Big words for residential black water system like Jack Todd has in his Maine house with (3) 50 gal. drums in his daylight basement and a septic tank outside.
I had a video link in one of the Garden e-news..... I'd love to see someone do a prototype of this system locally.

Thanks for getting in touch, Joseph. I hope my husband and I can meet your family some time soon. In the long term--after the holidays? next spring?--I'm interested in a Broadway Park group, too, and can contribute some time.

Hi Joseph! Thanks for the link for another bicycle-powered tool website:
http://rockthebike.com/power/bikerbar
I'm thinking I may get a discussion going about 'Sustainable Energy using Renewable Resources for heating, transportation, & powering tools'....do you want to join in if I or another posts a forum?
