Ask an Expert, Win the Book! CGP’s Green Advice Column Goes Weekly

ChelseaGreen.com is a constantly evolving experiment. Let’s say someone in the company—doesn’t matter who—comes up with a brilliant idea: we implement it, and if it works we keep doing it. If it doesn’t, we learn from the experience and move on.

So it is with “Ask the Experts.” We dangled our collective big toe in the water, sheepishly at first, and then with increasing confidence. The water was fine: clean, refreshing, and not too cold. So now it’s time to dive in.

What’s “Ask the Experts”? From time to time, readers will send us their sustainability questions via the ChelseaGreen.com “feedback” form. Some questions we can answer. But some require a greater degree of specialized knowledge. In those situations, we punt the question over to one of our many authors, each an expert in his or her own sustainability field. The fields range from psychology to politics to grape growing to home heating to rainwater catchment to preserving vegetables. We’re lucky to have at our disposal an incredibly diverse backlist going back nearly 25 years, and a stable of generous authors more than willing to give of their time and hard-won knowledge.

That’s why I’m pleased to announce that beginning this week, “Ask the Experts” is going weekly. We want you—yes, you—to send us your question relating to a topic under the umbrella of the politics and practice of sustainable living. If your question is selected, you win that author’s book.

The purpose of this whole thing is to grow and strengthen our community of readers, authors, and Web folks. It will be a lot of fun.

Here are some past “Ask the Expert” posts to get your hamster wheels a-turning:

UPDATE: Please leave your question in the comments section below, or send it to us via the feedback form.

UPDATE II: Please let us know if you would like us to use your full name or a clever pseudonym of our choosing. Questions may be edited for length or readability.
