Bring Home The Gnome!






The David Suzuki Foundation shipped Calvin's gnome to the nearest bus terminal, and Calvin needed to bring it to the yard.  So he eco-negotiated with his dad, to swing a carbon-free trip.  This video doesn't have alot to do with gardening, but does speak to a low impact philosophy.

Calvin has a cold, and it hurts for him to talk....so dad did most of the work this week (including some first-ever subtitles to help understand what Calvin was saying!).

I'll resort to still photos and text blogging until Calvin's voice is back. Because even though my friend Mike did all the heavy pedalling, it was challenging enough for me to try and keep up with him on my bike with a video camera duct taped to my helmet.

Thanks Nitro!

Nicely done!
I agree that people always take the easy way out... It's too easy to turn on the key and push the gas pedal. People need to take into consideration their own health! It's so much better to push the pedal again and again and again on the bike and get some good excercise!

I love these little videos! Very inspiring and I think that means it's time for me to replace my long lost bike and cycle to work.

Great video! Very inspiring. Life is so much nicer on a bicycle. Thanks for setting a good example! So, what's next for the gnome?

Hey, great job, you guys! That's was one mega heavy load on cycle! It was enough carrying ours to the garden! Calvin, you make a great gnome! :-)
