Second Hour Nov 20th: Greening Affordable Rental Properties

Please join the Midlands Group of the South Carolina Sierra Club and UofSC Public Health students November 20th at 11:30 am for a presentation on Greening Affordable Rental Properties!

The hard-working people behind the Greening Affordable Rental Properties Project are currently focusing their efforts on sustainable living in Fairfield County. The team is taking steps towards transforming a multi-family affordable housing complex into a more sustainable and environmentally friendly environment by suggesting renewable energy and energy efficient upgrades, installing onsite composting and water collection, as well as constructing raised beds for organic gardening. Please join the meeting for details about how to foster therapeutic and regenerative gardening practices and reduce energy burdens in our state.

We will be hearing from students of the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina on their roles in the project and all the exciting updates. Christina Bhola will be moderating the presentation along with Isabelle Duque giving general updates. Kelly Buchanan will be chatting about her informational interviews from some vital participants and community members of the project. Shakera Jenkins will be chatting about creating the herb spiral on the grounds of our current project.
