We in Northwest Indiana are also involved in promoting Living Green, under the auspices of the Porter County Builders Association. Our first exhibit was last November and our 2nd Living Green Expo will be this Novermber in conjunction with IVY TECH.
It occurred to me being a part of the agreenerindiana.com network, we could be mutually beneficial in advancing Living Green concepts by sharing our programs, strategies, ideas. We, for example, are partnering this year with IVY TECH and will have webinar resources to share information and the seminars with other IVY TECH campuses. Our goal is to have a Friday educational emphasis (although we're probably not going to get it done this year) that could interest primary and secondard school students and be a "field trip" experience.
If you are planning to have the Green Expo as an annual event and are interested in talking about it and sharing ideas, let me know. I'll be glad to come over to So Bend and meet with your organizers and have a "think tank" exchange.
But, it will have to be after the GREEN HOMES ON PARADE event from Sept 18-27 - THAT is now taking 110% of my time!
