Planet Earth is always evolving to sustain life for its inhabitants. It is our job to be its caretaker, knowing that it needs proper care and maintenance. Back in 2003, a group of individuals knew what they needed to do in Wisconsin to bring that awareness; they started a conference called “The Wisconsin Renewable Energy Summit.” With much growth and participation, attendees were able to see their social responsibilities to the environment and help green businesses flourish and look at making energy-efficient products and renewables.
On March 7, the Sustainability Summit welcomed hometown hero, Will Allen, Founder and CEO of Growing Power, who spoke on a subject that is not only dear to his heart but is a subject of much importance in terms of his company and, more importantly, the future of mankind: sustainable food systems.

Hello, fellow enthusiasts of all things tobacco, this was supposed to be your voice of reason, your cry out for justice, and your defense against walking off campus to have a cigarette. I was given this assignment because I am new to the Times, but also because I informed them that I am a smoker.
