Greetings to Oklahoma Sustainability Community!
I hope all are surviving a great mix of floods, rain, 100F heat and an occasional earthquake for a desert.
I wanted to bring everybody's attention to a series of workshops put together by a Norman-based non-profit Earth-Rebirth (http://www.earthrebirthnow.org/, (405) 358-3565, 325 E Comanche St, Norman, Oklahoma). In fact, the series already started last week with a workshop on essential oils.
Below is info on the next 2 workshops and links to their respective Facebook pages. On Sat Aug 29, 2015, I will be teaching a seminar on energy efficiency, renewable energy and specific steps you could make to promote energy & broader resource efficiency in Oklahoma. The topics are relevant to all people around Oklahoma and beyond. The ideas shared can be applied to your home, to your work places and beyond. Just FYI, all the proceeds will go to cover the costs of the seminar series and for all sorts of good causes. I am volunteering my time and will not compensated in any way. Through collaboration with Earth-Rebirth we managed to offer this seminar at 1/2 the usual cost: $5 general admission, and $4 student. In addition to main subject of the seminar, I will give a quick update on Oklahoma State Facilities Energy Conservation Program at the seminar.
