I saw a bunch of projects that had been vacated and all the stuff had been dragged out onto the grass in front. Visible from the train in Bridgeport, CT. It's sad that people have lost their homes, for whatever reason it was. However, it'd be good to use this resource: about 40 fridges I'd guess sitting out there. Even if they are broken, they are insulated structures that could be used for hot-box/hay box/thermal cooking, or making a cold frame, or maybe other uses. I think it would honor the people whose lives were disrupted to take their refrigerators and use them for Earth Care and People Care. I have no way of getting them but if anyone has a truck and land and a use for them, there they are.

(Also, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to leave refrigerators outdoors that way, since there is a fear that children will lock themselves inside and not be able to get out. The landowner is endangering people and breaking the law.)
