"Toward Self-Sufficiency" at Green Tuesdays


Tuesday, October 12: The Jindrich Family's journey toward a more self-sufficient future

The Jindrich Family of Monona is becoming more self-reliant by using fewer resources. Learn about their passive solar methods and their new geothermal system. Hear how they came up with an elegant solution to the age old too-much-rain-in-the-spring-but-not-enough-in-the-fall issue. Follow the design process of their waterworks, a series of pocket ponds, rain gardens, swales and berms that retain water for plants, people, and other animals to use.

Green Tuesdays Films & Lectures: Creating awareness, sparking conversation, empowering change.

A free series of films, presentations, and conversations on sustainability, Monona's Green Tuesdays start at 6:30 and run until 8:00, with engaging and fun conversations often pushing the conclusion a bit past that hour. Sessions are on the second and fifth Tuesdays of the month, from September through May. They are open to the public: all are welcome.

Green Tuesdays, a project of The Natural Step Monona and the Monona Public Library, now reaches four additional communities: Mt. Horeb, Middleton, Cross Plains, and Oregon. To see the calendar for all Green Tuesday and Thursday dates, go to

Whole Foods serves treats, so please come early for delightful food and drink.

Green Tuesdays is sponsored by The Natural Step Monona in collaboration with Oregon Working to Live Sustainably (OWLS), Mount Horeb Area Sustainability Network, RGPL Green Tuesdays (Cross Plains), the City of Middleton Sustainability Committee, Cottage Grove Green Tuesdays, and the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, and is supported by the Dane County Environmental Council.
