    In 2010 I wrote a research paper to determine the greenhouse gas emission impact of a network of connected farms on urban rooftops and my interest was awakened. 2011 I was feverishly researching the tech, products and systems for commercial plant production while growing my own food and learning all that I could about greenhouse […]

  • If a tree falls in the forest…..

    You know how the rest goes but the real question becomes. If I don’t post often to carfreebrad, does it really exist? Thanks to the internet, the answer is yes.  With that in mind I wanted to put this post up to welcome any newcomers to the site.  I write here very seldom these days […]

  • I have my license and ride my bike by choice!

    There, I said it!  There’s been a rash of discussion/comments in my sphere of consciousness insinuating that only people with multiple DUI’s ride bikes to get around.
