Energy Audit

Is anyone having an energy audit or has anyone had one and would like to talk about it for a video story that I'm producing on weatherization for The JPVoice (www.thejpvoice.com) and the programs available that offer subsidies to weatherize homes in the Boston area.

JP Community Garden Documentary...

I'm working on a short documentary about JP's Community Gardens, the people who have plots, what they grow and what motivates the whole endeavor. I'd love to speak with a few people who have plots and actively cultivate them.

It will be short, 5-7minutes, but if you're interested I'd love to speak with you about it. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Thanks.

Thanks.
