I got this email yesterday from Joe Pahr, Advisor and Social Studies Specialist at ARTech:
Today I met Andy Davis of Changing Gears. He and his fiancee, Melissa, had stopped at Blue Monday on their way from Bloomington, Indiana to San Francisco by bicycle. Along the way they are filming a documentary about communities and organizations that are working towards sustainable living practices. We had quite a discussion about what is happening in Northfield…
Tomorrow, Wednesday, I am meeting them at ARTech to do an interview about the school’s solar project. At least one of the students involved in the project will be there. You are welcome to join us. Andy and Melissa will be in town at least until tomorrow afternoon. Also, I pointed out Griff’s table at Blue Monday and told them to introduce themselves. On a related note, this morning I met Anders Forselius who is cycling around the world from his native Sweden. His website is He hopes to be in Beijing for the Summer Olympics. All roads truly lead to Northfield.
I’m hoping they stick around till this afternoon to catch our podcast recording session and maybe a beer at the Cow afterwards.
They blogged the first day of their visit to Northfield. I expect they’ll have another post in a day or two.’
11:30am update: Andy and Melissa stayed in Bruce Anderson’s backyard last night. Bruce blogged them.
