Lend me a hand

. May 17, 2012.

Sharing information and learning proper skills is necessary to build sustainable communities. Many people within the Ann Arbor community are equipped with the knowledge and resources to assist in the creation of a better environment and many more ready to put sustainable philosophies into practice, but do not know where to turn. That is where the Green Hands Reskilling Initiative lends a hand. The initiative’s concept is simple—people within the community that are knowledgeable about “green” ideas and practices display a Green Hand sign in front of their residence to indicate they are willing to teach their skill set, and people who are looking to learn know where to go. Whether your knowledge is in organic gardening, home water conservation, alternative energy solutions or thoughts on ideas and awareness, all topics are open to share.
