E-M:/ Wind harnessed to cleanse murky pond

SEEDS builds system and teaches others
TRAVERSE CITY - Julie and Youngman Chai never imagined the pond in the backyard of their Leelanau County bayside home would become a classroom.
      But when the seasonal pond started getting murky, the couple enlisted help from SEEDS, a local environmental group that made restoring the pond a hands-on lesson in natural cleansing.
      The Chais joined a handful of other area pond owners this week to design, build and install a wind-powered pond restorer system.
