Grow Food Not Lawns!

If you have space to grow food at home, please consider Plant(ing) a Row for the Hungry and take the additional produce to the food bank.

Does the Tri-Cities need a Green & Sustainable Business Directory?
Please take a few moment to answer some questions that will help us determine whether such a directory would be viable. Green & Sustainable Business Directory survey. When we had the E3 Washington Summit in the spring of 2008 one of the ideas that people had was to create a Green Business Directory. Folks wanted to know which local businesses or services were run with people, place and profit in mind. Click here to take survey
