What I Know

  • They were putting food in baskets for a guy who is coming to collect the food with horses.
  • The Whippersnapper Company is going to make Sage Valley an energy self-efficient town.
  • There were many workshops such as teaching how to refit your car to ethanol, a farming program and a lot of other energy workshops.



Felt like a pioneer: Gwen felt like a pioneer because pioneers travel around with                                                      horses carrying supplies in carts. That was exactly what they were                                            doing.

Very Happy: As she was watching the Marietta residents help, a fireball of                                                     happiness started to form growing bigger and bigger.
