We’re mostly all back, mostly all cleaned up, time for some reports back on how we did with this whole green thing.
Couple stats right off the back: the wood recycling set a new record: 56 units of lumber loaded down 4 flatbeds, all donated to Habitat For Humanity in Reno.
Also, the composting project with the City of San Francisco loaning out their curbside green bins was a huge hit–we loaded out an entire 30 yard dumpster of gooey wet green waste, and sent it off to Full Circle Compost down in Minden.
But what I’m most curious about was your experience, your efforts, what you encountered/saw/felt/did. Drop a line, let’s hear how the green man worked out for you: environment here: environment (at) burningman.com.
Thanks, look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi friends! Andie Grace here. Been playing with these new blog tools behind the scenes for a while here (you like?) and we’re currently figuring out some kind of problem with the comment modules on this one; they seem to function only sporadically, when they feel like it.
A few readers added great comments in the past 2-3 days that were in the blog panel and marked as “not spam” but somehow aren’t showing up yet. We don’t want you to get discouraged; we’re working on what the problem is and do want this tool to work. Thanks to those who have already contributed (or tried to) to this little corner of our online world; we hope to get things sorted out ASAP, even as we have one foot in the desert. Please keep comin’ back!
See you soon, very soon…
[CORRECTION] In the postcard Timmmii’s Tips For 2007 recently sent to new and returning Burning Man ticket buyers, the dates listed for Burning Man on the front of the card are INCORRECT.
The correct dates of the event are Aug. 27-Sept. 3, 2007
Burning Man does NOT start Aug. 25. If you arrive Aug. 25, you will be turned away at the gate.
We regret the error, have sobbed about it for days, and promise to self-immolate ourselves just as soon as we find the time.
Love and kisses,

Well hi there. You’ve come to the right place. We’re quite sure of that. If you were in the wrong place, you’d probably know.
So now that we know that you’re right and they are wrong, let’s get down to it.
First off, some introductions are probably in order. My name is Timmmii. I’m a human, much like most of you reading. I come from a land far, far away, but I managed to escape that land and find myself in this place, where I am right now.
More importantly, I’m a big fan of this thing called Burning Man. You may have heard of it. Burning Man is this unbelievably amazing event that happens but once a year out in the Black Rock Desert. For just one week. But people plan for it year round. Read more »
In case you missed it, here again is the invitation to participate in the Green Man Pavilion. It will be an incredible space, and an extraordinary opportunity to share your expertise with the entire event.
Green Man Pavilion: An Open Invitation to Artists, Innovators, and Visionaries
A city is in many ways analogous to a body, and certain areas perform specific functions. The center of Black Rock City is like the solar plexus. Here, within a civic plaza, our community converges, sharing a rich and nourishing flow of constant interaction. The heart of Black Rock City might arguably be found in the Temple, far out on the open playa. This architectural marvel is devoted to the remembrance of the dead. Between these two impressive nodes may be found the base of the Man. This central landmark of our community may be likened to the mind.
