Description

Where the Grassroots Grow is dedicated to Beth Brown Boettner, who started the Austin, Texas recycling program and was a cherished community activist. When her supporters encouraged her to run for office, Beth refused, and noted "I want to be the old lady in tennis shoes who gets things done." Because she died in her mid 40's, Beth didn't become an old lady, but she did leave an empowering legacy behind her.
