As an Ogunquit, Maine local and member of the Ogunquit Greening Committee, I aspire to live a green lifestyle. While I'm still learning, my goal is to spread the word about how to be conscientiously green in your community with tips on gardening, green recreation, and energy/resource consumption. Help me help you by asking questions, being engaged, and sharing your green lifestyle.

Seems to be getting colder and colder! A recent study showed that warming your car up for an excess of just 1 min. leaves your idling car wasting precious fuel. The fastest way to warm up your car and all it’s parts is simply to drive it. Make sure you start out slow though so you and your car can ease into warmth.
