I just spent some time updating my company’s web site with info from emails I received in the last week and wanted to provide you with this snapshot of all of the good info there for the taking. And this is without my even looking for things to do that will educate you about green homes and lifestyles.
By the way, you missed a great green community tour on Saturday. The weather was perfect, we looked at three different kinds of homes and examined up close porous sidewalks, bioswales, and the other enviromental functions that make High Point special. In fact, both High Point and GreenWorks Realty are mentioned in the brand new book “The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget”, on page 112-113. It’s so cool to see my neighborhood and my company discussed in detail in a book! UPS delivered a bubble package today, this book is hot off the press.
I provide community tours as a public service about once a quarter, so if you missed it this time watch the Green Spaces meetup calendar for next time.
