header imgBay Area Parents:  It’s not too late to register for the Growing Greener School Grounds Conference taking place this weekend in San Francisco.  Meet other parents who want to add features like gardens, rainwater harvesting and chickens to their kids’ schools.  Learn about resources that can help you transform asphalt into apple trees and astro-turf into tomatoes.

Sungevity will be there Friday night handing out flyers inviting schools to join our new Beyond the Bake Sale Solar Fundraising Program for schools–for every Sungevity customer schools and non-profits send our way, Sungevity makes a $1000 donation which schools can use to finance green improvements or pay for other programs axed from the school budget during these lean times.  If you know of a school or non-profit that would like to raise some sunny money, get in touch with me at  eetelson (at) sungevity (dot) com.  Goodbye, cupcakes and grant proposals…hello, clean energy!
