Updated Services

We are updating our residential services to better meet our diverse community’s needs, enhance our educational offerings, and focus on improving watershed health. The Green Living Co-op is winding down in 2022 in order for us to better assist people with affordable, hydro-local home projects. New Co-op projects will not be scheduled moving forward.

Our consultation and design services will continue and we have a list of water harvesting contractors that can install projects.
