I know we’ve had some discussion in our Mohawk Grange about this, too, and I wondered whether anyone has any thoughts about how the idea of a ‘Green Grange’  ties into the original Grange movement, our local Marcola economy, and the National Grange.  Is it something that interests you, or do you think its a radical departure from the mission of the Grange?

If you’re interested, you can check out the website of the Mary’s River Grange and get to know them a bit here

I’d like to hear your comments…
