While this first meeting is designed to assess needs, wants, and ideas, hosts Julie and Stanley Dill and Charlotte and Alan Lovett anticipate that participants will want to walk their talk. “In the brief time we’ve lived here, we have met so many natural and green living enthusiasts,” says co-owner Julie Dill. “They’re everywhere we go … Visionaries In Preservation, the Lavender Festival, the Chamber, the library, in the park, on the Square …! Blanco is a town where people take action, and it is clear that many citizens want to live an environmentally conscious and natural lifestyle, and preserve the resources we hold dear.”
Stephen Colley, AIA, LEED AP, green architect, speaker and program director of the Build San Antonio Green program, will share his experience with green initiatives and the benefits they can have on a community. He is also coordinator of the San Antonio Sustainable Building Coalition and a long time practitioner of green and sustainable design.
