GreenTown to Present in Moore at REBUILD Expo

As Oklahoma communities recover from the May 2013 tornadoes, Greensburg GreenTown and GreenTown Joplin were asked by the City of Oklahoma City Office of Sustainability to help with the REBUILD Expo on Saturday, August 3, 2013 in the city of Moore. Go to the link provided for information about the agenda for this important event.

Since May of 2007, when Greensburg, Kansas was destroyed by an EF5 tornado, GreenTown has acted as a consultant for a number of communities wishing to look at sustaniable options in their rebuilding efforts after natural disasters. I have followed their efforts closely in Greensburg, Kansas and Joplin, Missouri, and I am thankful for their efforts here in Oklahoma. I highly recommend attending their presentations at the REBUILD Expo. “Program content has been to tailored assist people who are rebuilding in areas affected by the May storms, but the Expo is open to anyone who is considering building a home and wants to learn how to do so with energy efficiency and durability in mind.”
