SfGS has joined forces with a larger sustainability and appropriate technology wiki!
This page is now an archive. The living version of this page is located at Appropedia. The content below on this archive page will be removed soon, probably around February 29, 2008, so that web searches can more effectively direct folks to the correct home. This message will remain indefinitely (at the discretion of the openwetware administrators) so that people following old links and bookmarks can still find the right page.
