Neighbor Power!

A large part of sustainability or 'green' is about localism. Think about it, in Indiana you conserve fuel by shopping local and making fewer trips. Green building starts with how a building is placed on its site and the use of locally available materials.

Now expand your thinking beyond the…

To raise money for the home, the children turn the fronts of used greeting cards (Christmas, Hanukah, birthdays, anniversary, etc.) into new greeting cards which they sell.
