Gino Shares His Suburban Sprawl Experience Out in the Country

Gino grew up with farms around his property. Recently, many lands used to grow food and raise farm animals were sold to property developers which led to the boom of suburbia. Gino is holding onto his land for his horses and chickens while watching his country disappears. What can we do to stop the spread of suburbanization? Thanks Gino, for the vlog.

A Quick Tour Outside of the Eco-Friendly House in Leveque, Haiti.

Tony gives a quick tour outside of Williams's eco-friendly home in Leveque, Haiti. Emmanuel Jacq volunteered to be the cameraman and contributed a few minutes of his time to EcoDeaf. Emmanuel is the co-founder and the executive director of the International Deaf Emergency (IDE).  Visit www.ideafe.org to learn more about the work of IDE in Haiti.

*Please note that I signed Haiti wrong in the beginning of the v-log. To sign Haiti the right way, use both letters the H and I, instead of H alone, over the "island" hand, which I signed it correctly at the end of the v-log. It took me a while to change that signing habit after I was corrected by the Deaf Haitians during my visit. If you look at the map of Haiti, you'll see how it makes sense to use both the H and I letters. -Tony

Many thanks to Williams and Emmanual for making this v-log happen!!
