Workshop Description

To build a sustainable society, we need efforts to reinvent urban and suburban neighborhoods so they become much more self-sufficient. Come see how you can help transform your neighborhood into a model of sustainability that practices conservation and recycling, utilizes renewable energy, composts its waste, grows its own fruits and vegetables, and feels more like a tightly knit community.
