Happy New Year! We are excited to bring you another edition of our EarthMatters newsletter. The Winter 2012 EarthMatters feature article, by Sarah van Gelder and Doug Pibel of YES! Magazine, lays out a plan for creating an economy that builds real prosperity without undermining the natural systems that we all rely on. Inside you’ll also find a wonderful Knowing Your Place piece, “Thinking like Aldo Leopold” and the latest news from the NWEI community and partners.
