Urban Green Lab Movement
Like HappyNash, Urban Green Lab is all about connecting people with information, inspiration, and a broader community to make healthy, happy, sustainable living a reality in Nashville. We are Nashville’s first nonprofit dedicated to improving our city’s well-being through sustainability. Our workshops – on everything from green building to urban agriculture – spark positive changes at home and work that save money, improve health, and conserve resources. Currently, we are designing the city’s first mobile sustainability laboratory. This vehicle, outfitted with interactive exhibits and green technologies, will travel to schools, businesses, and community events across Nashville. With your help – as a volunteer, donor, or participant – we are building a community-based movement in Nashville.
I am honored to be the first Director of Urban Green Lab! Having worked for several nonprofits and the federal government, it’s a thrill to be back in my hometown working with wonderful people for a great cause. What motivates me to do this work is the enormous potential of our city for true prosperity – growth that is healthy, equitable, and economically and environmentally beneficial. We strive for growth that embodies the triple bottom line – people, profits, and planet. For more information about our work and how you can be involved, please contact me for any questions or how to get involved. Thank You!
