We are happy to share the news that Green Town USA is available! Author Thomas J. Fox did extensive interviewing of folks who were integral to Greensburg's green recovery, and has done a masterful job of telling the story of the genesis of the Green Initiative. I wept as I read the opening chapters and relived how Greensburg took the tragedy of May 4, 2007 and transformed the town into the inspiring beacon hope on the Kansas plains that it is today.
Now, six years later, Greensburg is ready to teach the rest of us how to do it. Green Town USA provides a roadmap that will help us use the experiences of Greensburg to transform our own communities. We don't have to wait for tragedy to begin this process of change. from the Foreward by Alex Wilson
GreenTown's executive director and co-founder, Daniel Wallach, offers his dream for the future of Greensburg, GreenTown, and the world in the book's Introduction:
My dream now . . . is to see communities around the country (and the world) come together to tackle challenges with a zest and a loving commitment to future generations, to preserve this astoundingly beautiful planet and the very systems that make life possible. I hope that reading this excellent book helps move you in that direction and most of all gives you a sense of optimism and awareness of the power of your vision and impact that you can, and will, have.
