Raising awareness for all things about sustainability requires many man hours. Man hours being a liberal term of course. Volunteers who put sustainability efforts above their own schedules and promote sustainabilty are priceless in their efforts, but also in their results.
Volunteering at booths, in classrooms, and at public events requires a break away from their own business to help others understand the need to reduce their carbon footprint is very impactful work!
The people that volunteer in sustainability can be described as self-less, caring, warm- hearted folks who are generous with their time. We're pretty much like family and when someone leaves the group, warm memories surface.
The photo above is of one of the many times we set up "the beast" of a booth for the US Green Building Council. The two folks on the left have since retired from construction and real estate. Ali Al Asady can still be located on the West side of town working his real estate and we'll see him from time to time.
The classroom photo above is of the 10/6/18 Multi-Family tour featuring Kirsten Shaw, General Contractor, Advanced Energy and HERS Rater for the project. She's also an enthusiastic volunteer with a background in teaching in the high school and collegiate levels.
These are attendees, volunteers and sponsors of the first Healthy Home Challenges & Solutions seminar taught by Ali Al-Asady at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center
Our 2018 Residential Committee super volunteers who always made themselves available, spent their extra time on projects, and used their creativity toward events - THANK YOU!
Thank you to these and the countless volunteers who have enriched me with their friendship and their knowledge. I am grateful for your volunteerism, love and laughter!
