Amelia Legare saw a red barn at Greig Farm in Red Hook and many possibilities for improving the environment. As a gardening instructor for an elementary school, she started with talking to farm-owner Norman Greig about starting a native-plant garden at the farm but soon a host of ideas for using local ingredients in household items, selling them in bulk to reduce use of plastic, forming a community compost CGA, providing classes on environmental issues (and yoga), and more were not only conceived by implemented. Since the goal was sustainability with zero waste, the barn was converted into a bulk-goods emporium for household products and named “The O Zone,” for a place with zero negative impact on the environment. RadioRotary is delighted to bring new of Lagare’s vision and enterprise to a greater audience. Listen to the program to learn about the many ways The O Zone can improve both the environment and your life.
