In her Earth Matters column in today’s edition of the Portsmouth Herald, Deborah Mcdermott focuses on the challenges faced by Star Island with regards to resource consumption and management.

Facilities Superintendent Jack Farrell and Pelican Drew Clark speak about measures and initiatives that Star is exploring to improve the island’s sustainability, including solar energy and a new vegetable garden.

“I don’t want to leave here until I make a change,” (Farrell) said. “If any place should be sustainable, it should be this pristine environment where people come to be spiritually renewed.”
