Well, well, after three times going out and around, Georgia and Rebekka, the two chief instigators of the Uncanny Project, are finally making some headway with this start-up project to collect aluminum cans from neighbors to take to J.B. Salvage in exchange for cash which will in turn help fund GANA, GANE and GANG projects. YES!
Georgia: It was fun taking the cans to JB Salvage. Our cans totaled 13 lbs for a total of 6.89 + $1.00 for the small piece of copper pipe for a grand total of $7.89. We’re on our way!
Rebekka: Well, I guess that’s a good start, right? I think we should really start thinking about getting block captains set up. Possibly at the next meeting we could discuss further?
Georgia: That’s a great Idea. I’ll send some info later today about Block Captains. I tried once before and I didn’t do so well so we have to be very diligent this time.
Oops! True Confession time: I, Ann Kreilkamp, a member of the Green Acres Neighborhood Association, (GANA) Ecovillage (GANE), and Garden (GANG), was the culprit who poo-pooed the idea of Block Captains to the group when Georgia first proposed it a number of years ago. Now I realize it’s obviously a GREAT IDEA, especially when initially fueled by the Uncanny Project.
