Chuck Leavell on Mother Nature Network (Part One)

Posted: Oct 13, 2009

Chuck Leavell Talks About Mother Nature Network (Part One)

Last fall when I wrote Widespread Panic's induction article for the Georgia Music Hall of Fame I interviewed Chuck Leavell since he was actually inducting the band at the ceremony in front of a televised audience. At the time, Chuck was just about to launch his new website Mother Nature Network. It's a site beyond informative and Chuck has conducted some great interviews. A few weeks before the website launched Chuck told me how the site originated:

"It is The Mother Nature Network. Eventually we’ll be known as MNN.com, that’s what we’re pushing for the website. It’s the brainchild of my partner Joel Babbit. Basically, Joel came to me – Joel and I met through a mutual friend Dan Beason. We had a nice lunch about five years ago. We liked each other’s company. We stayed in touch and then one day I called him because I was looking to get some advice on a project I have called Love of the Land, which will eventually be a television program. Joel helped me with that and we became closer. Then he calls me one day and he told me he wanted me to look at something. He had a power point presentation covering all the Green websites out there. Then he said he represented too many different companies, and all of them want this image and they all do truly want to do better for their companies and their employees to be Greener and more eco-friendly, and more energy conscience, but there’s a lack of somewhere to go to get good information. He took me through all the existing sites, and he felt like there was a void where we could provide a valuable service to the general public as well as allowing these companies to have a place to go and tell their story. So, it looked incredible to me when he gave me the presentation. Then I said I think you’re right. I’m out there giving speeches and interacting with politicians on forest policy. I’m sitting on a couple of boards..."

I intend to print up this interview with Chuck where we also discuss his books, his music, tree farming and even The Rolling Stones. Look for Part Two of my interview with Chuck regarding Mother Nature Network hopefully soon. Stay tuned...

Twilight was about them as they crept back to the lane. The West wind was sighing in the branches. Leaves were whispering. Soon the louis vuitton outletroad began to fall gently but steadily into the dusk. A star came out above the trees in the darkening East before them. They went abreast and in step, to keep up their spirits. After a time, as ugg boots outletthe stars grew thicker and brighter, the feeling of disquiet left them, and they no longer listened for the sound of hoofs. They began to hum softly, as hobbits have a way ofugg boots clearance doing as they walk along, especially when they are drawing near to home at night. With most hobbits it is a supper-song or a bed-song; but these hobbits hummed a walking-song (though not, of course, withoutugg boots clearance any mention of supper and bed). Bilbo Baggins had made the words, to a tune that was as ugg boots clearanceold as the hills, and taught it to Frodo as they walked in the lanes of the Water-valley and talked about Adventure.
