Going Green News

The Going Green Committee is pleased to announce two clinics that will be part Southern Village Farmers Market on Thursday, May 5th from 3:30 – 6:30 on Aberdeen Drive, adjacent to the Village Green:

1. Muriel Williman, the Outreach coordinator for Orange County Waste Management will do a composting demo.  The demonstration will teach participants the basics of indoor composting using worms, and outdoor composting using a variety of methods including both home-made and manufactured containers.  Class will discuss various compost “recipes”, how to build both hot and passive piles, what does and does not go in, and best management practices.

2. Sun Dogs Solutions, a certified contractor in the Chapel Hill WISE (Worthwhile Investment Save Energy) program will be present ways to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient and talk about the WISE program. “Measure, Reduce, Produce = Smart Energy Solutions”.  When it comes to your home, energy efficiency projects can seem overwhelming and all too often homeowners give up because they simply don’t know where to start.  If this sounds familiar, then this presentation is for you.  During this presentation, you will learn about the basic concepts of energy efficiency, what tools performance contractors use to evaluate your home and why, and what you should expect from an home performance analysis.  The purpose of this presentation is to inform so you will be better equipped to hire a qualified performance contractor that will meet your needs.
