An Earth Day Welcome!
by Kristy B. Yule, MIRM
As we approach our celebration of Earth Day (our favorite day of the year!) on April 16, 2011 this is a special opportunity for Briar Chapel to bring a greater awareness to the cornerstones that we live and breathe on a daily basis. We are excited to be sharing with you some special features from our local partners, restaurants, educators and friends as we take a look at sustainability from various angles.
As the largest green community in the Triangle, we celebrate green not only in our home construction, land development practices and core values but in the community partners we choose to work closely with and the day-to-day decisions we make to run our business.
Some of the topics we will cover will be
- "Hunt for Green" Challenge - an opportunity to get up close and personal views of some of the green features of our homes/community and win great prizes
- Tami Schwerin of the Abundance Foundation on support of local farmers, renewable energy and her perspective on sustainability
- Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland, which talks about how much food American's waste, thewasted food's ramificationsand how we can all do our part to reduce food waste.
- Culinary experts from Carolina Inn, Fearrington House, Angelina's Kitchen, Saxapahaw General Store, Busy Bee Café, Fullsteam Brewery and Bean & Barrel on the importance of using locally grown foods
So we invite you to stay tuned for exciting information all leading to the Earth Day Celebration we will be hosting at Briar Chapel from April 16th.Check out our Earth Day landing page for more details and be sure to stop back often to our blog page!
