Sustainability commission asks city to unplug

Monday, June 3, 2013

The Greencastle Sustainability Commission has accomplished a lot in its four-year existence, with much of its direction coming from community input and involvement.

Those who came together had many different ideas about what it would mean to be a sustainable community. Instead of trying to work toward a mutually agreeable definition, the commission members moved forward and focused their attention on things that could green our community and make it a better, more sustainable place to live and work.

Reinvigorating the Farmers' Market, creating a Community Garden, creating the Food for Neighbors in Need program and executing the RISE grant, to name just a few of the group's initiatives, took the dedication and hard work of many.

We would like to celebrate these accomplishments by stepping back and taking a deep breath.

We hope you will join us, during the month of June, in UNPLUGGING.

We realize that UNPLUGGING will mean something different to everyone, but our hope is that it will allow you to have time that is both meaningful and green to enjoy your days, your family and your community.

Look in your Monday Banner Graphic this month for the Sustainability Commission's UNPLUGGED tip for the week.
