Topic: Sustainability in Daily Life

 Living and working "green" are great goals... but what really matters? How can we make the biggest impacts? We all wish we had an unlimited budget but what can we accomplish with a very little one? Explore the answers to these questions and ask your own. Learn what one Rockford family has done to improve sustainability at their home and their downtown business by reclaiming materials, utilizing alternative energy sources, and making decisions with the environment in mind. Topics of discussion to include use of solar and geothermal resources as well as conscious choices to reduce or "improve" resource consumption and reduce waste. 

This program is presented by Lenae Weichel who’s family became locavores for a year in 2008 eating only food produced within 100 miles of their Rockford home.  Come and hear about Lenae’s latest environmental projects and be inspired.
