Please note this site is optimized for the most recent versions of the major browers: Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2.0, and Safari 2.0.

The generation that came of age in the '60s and '70s changed the way we think about music, race, women, war, food, fashion, poverty, marriage, the environment and politics. Now it's going to change the way we look at aging, and RedwoodAge wants to help.

Named for the majestic trees that grow to hundreds of years of age in Northern California, RedwoodAge publishes news, information and blogs. We're building community forums and networking tools to share and test ideas. And we urge people to take action - personally and socially, to enhance the quality of life for everyone, young or old.

Our site follows four principles that inspired our motto: "Think. Share. Act. Live."

Critical Thinking: The best ideas emerge by challenging established thinking.

Sharing Information: Share insights, opinions, joys and frustrations so that others will benefit from your experiences.

Social Activism: Help to shape a future in which everyone ages with companionship, respect and health.

The Whole Life: A balance of intellectual strength, physical fitness and spiritual meaning is essential to living a satisfying life.

Freaky stuff? Not really. Our team consists of veteran journalists, skilled artists, pragmatic businesspeople, experienced professionals and others who just want to make the world a little better. RedwoodAge sells ads to support our work. Our employees have a stake in our company and take pride in being a part of the RedwoodAge community.

Please let us know what you think of our still-developing site. Tell us if you'd like to work with us, or if you would like to advertise. And please help others benefit from RedwoodAge by commenting on our stories and participating in our forums (they're coming soon). As we grow, we'd like to hear from you. After all, we're all in this thing together.
