 On February 23, Brookside Gardens will be hosting a Green Matters symposium on urban trees and forestry. “Green Matters, an annual symposium, concentrates attention on environmental issues with which we are currently faced and over which we have some control. Environmental stewardship is a core value of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), Brookside Garden’s parent organization. As such, we strive to provide timely information and viable solutions to environmental challenges, because we feel strongly that green does matter. The 2007 Green Matters Symposium focuses on the topic of trees.”

It is in BLOG form that residents can comment on and includes a Community Guide. The site is very innovative with an integrated Event Calander. The Community Guide takes the form of a wiki. This is the only community website of it’s kind that I have seen in our area. The website contains information about local parks, businesses and residences in the community, as well as information about business that provide services to South Silver Spring.

Congratulations to South Silver Spring – I think the new site looks great! And Last but not least, for the ultimate in Home Improvement and Bathroom renovation….. I recieved an email from Roto Rooter, I have used them in my Real Estate business and at home over the last few years. They are great in an emergency and at a reasoanble charge. I was surprised when they sent me this email about giving away a TRICKED OUT TOILET? in their PIMPED Out JOHN sweepstakes. This is for Real? What will they think of next?
