Earth Day at The Ecology Center
The celebration started a few days early this year, with yesterday's Earth Day event at The Ecology Center, where community members enjoyed organic treats from South Coast Farm, listened to live music and participated in demonstration workshops.
We couldn't help but take a peek at our solar structure site, behind the historic Congdon House, the oldest wooden structure in San Juan Capistrano (and home to The Ecology Center since 2008), and were excited to see the tell-tale signs that construction is impending...
This project is a great example of how the building industry, community and environment can work together to contribute to the educational efforts of this great organization. All services- architectural, structural, and construction- are being provided on a pro-bono basis, and materials (including PV, green roof modules and paper-based fiber composite siding material) were generously donated by local vendors.
With all our approvals in place and the permit ready to go, what better time to break ground on a project that embodies the environmental, social and community-oriented principles of sustainable design?
MYD is excited to be a part of this collaborative effort, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day!
