As a member of Greener Indiana and a NWI resident, I thought you might be interested in the PCBA Green Homes on Parade in the first NAHB Certified Green Community in the country.

Go to www.pcbaonline.com for more information.

While at that site, check out the 2nd Living Green Expo we’re holding in conjunction with IVY TECH this fall. We’re looking for a wide range of representatives from the community for participation.

If you’d like more information or to be involved, e-mail me at jackgiven@comcast.net

You inspire me! My goal one day is to have a green home to call my own. Decked out with wind turbine and solar power, geothermal and eco construction and filled with eco products and materials. Did you install that yourself or just bought it all from a company?
