John Bielenberg just made a presentation about Buy a Meter, that lovely little Alabama project that we just can’t stop talking about. Water meters will be purchased as gifts for all the mainstage speakers at the conference, and they’ve produced t-shirts reading 425 that will be sold for $425 (the cost to bring clean water to the 25% of Hale County residents that don’t have access to it). Even if you’re not here, you can buy one, too.
Somewhat coincidentally, Pam Dorr, HERO’s angel-like director and M’s person on the ground for Buy a Meter, was interviewed about the project on the excellent KCRW radio show “Good Food” today at 11am (scroll down to see more information and links).
