15th Day, 15th Way

15.  Meet a local
A big part of living a 4(for) green acres life is getting to know the community around you. Since their acres bump into yours, the only way to get theirs greener, which helps your own,  is to develop a relationship with them.  This may be a neighbor, local shop owner, or a farmer that has a CSA. 

I have gotten to know the owner of a local business because I frequently shop there, and he has introduced me to farmers and other business owners I didn't know before.  Your 4(for) green acres community will come in time, but the first step is to introduce yourself to someone new.
