“A contractor’s perspective on residential greenbuilding”

Affordable and accessible methods and materials that can be used in remodeling and construction projects

This presentation will be offered by Dr. Polly Bart, president of Greenbuilders Inc, on April 22nd at 7:00PM at the Waldorf School of Baltimore. 4801 Tamarind Road Baltimore MD 21209

Subjects of discussion will include site, water, energy, materials, and indoor air quality. High profile techniques like green roofs, composting toilets, and solar will be discussed. However, sometimes the greenest thing you can do is to make just small changes, and to learn to love and better use what you have. Dr. Bart studied architecture at Harvard University and was the third woman to receive a Ph.D in City and Regional Planning from Berkeley. She has been listed in Who’s Who in America since 1986.

Greenbuilders, Inc. was founded in 2004 to do remodeling and additions using green methods and materials. Greenbuilders also acts as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) consultant for commercial projects.Affordable and accessible methods and materials that can be used in remodeling and construction projects.

Even After All This Time

Even
after all this time,
the sun never says
to the earth
“You owe me.”

Look what happens,

with a love like that —

it lights
the whole
sky.
