    Thank you for sharing WiserEarth on your blog. Your readers might be interested in using WiserEarth Groups (See more here: which offers a free, easy to use, online community space for the social justice and environmental community. What’s better is your group can pull in any of the content already up on WiserEarth (orgs, resources, jobs, events, etc) and share what you create. Already we have over 1,000 groups up and running.
