Schuylerville corn maze uses 7-acre canvas to raise environmental awareness

 

Schuylerville, NY, August 20, 2010: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse, Go-Green, sustainable energy, climate change, global warming; these are all terms that each of us have heard almost daily in our personal lives. They are not just the latest buzz words or phrases, but they are all part of a larger movement that affects us all one way or another. We all have an opportunity to take part in this movement; it may be just as simple as turning off a light when you leave the room, changing over to electronic billing instead of paper, or buying from your local farm stand instead of heading miles further to the grocery store. Jerry Macica, of Schuyler Farms Corn Maze, points out "Going Green" has become a lifestyle for more and more people and Mother Nature surely appreciates it. But he is also quick to point out for the skeptics that there are personal benefits to "going green". Reduced energy bills, healthier food choices, improved health, or even having extra change in your pocket.
