Green Streets is coming to you on Saturday, June 16th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. Tours will be starting at Painters Hall, where there will be vendors and wonderful things to share.

Net Zero Home Life

A new Net Zero home is being built on John Muir Loop by Better Builders of Oregon, and it is looking fantastic. This is a home that not only looks good, but has some rad green technologies for you and your family, too.

This was a progressive party where we walked from each hosts home for a snack, drink and visit before moving on to the next neighbors home. Each home comes with ... Read more

Flower Power Innovator

At Pringle Creek Community we are in the middle of our Urban Farmers class offered by the SLC (Sustainable Living Center) and are preparing for an important day of the year, Earth Day. Earth Day started in the 70s, in the midst of hippy happiness and spreading the love. In the 80s, the three Rs were yelled from across school auditoriums, and your class may have even been trying to ... Read more
