Time for Lunch, Eat-In Campagin at Freimann Square

September 7, 2009 from 1pm to 3pm

Those habits can start at schoolbut only if we give schools the resources to serve real food instead of the overly processed fast food that endangers their health.On Labor Day, Sept. 7, 2009,…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I have a passion for sustainability and community outreach. I have been able to do both in many of the positions I have held and most recently am working with Earth Charter Indiana's Sustainable Indiana 2016 initiative as the Region (2) Coordinator.

I can trace back my green roots to the 1970s energy and oil crisis. My father was forever yelling at me to turn off the lights. Unfortunately, I love bright rooms ~ I was yelled at a lot. However now, I can do so feeling a lot better with LEDs and CFLs.
