Geothermal Heating, part of the Healthy Choices for People and Planet. Seekonk Public Library, 401 Newman Ave. (Route 152). Mel Hensch, founder of EfficiencyPlus, a company dedicated to energy efficiency, conservation and renewable energy, will speak on geothermal energy for heating and cooling. Geothermal energy makes use of the relatively constant temperature of the earth a few feet below the ground surface to create a green or neutral heat pump that saves energy and provides a clean, renewable source of energy.
Joseph Newsome, who conceived and oversaw the development of the 17 Gordon Ave business incubator in Providence (RI’s first green commercial building) and David Ward, a LEED consultant, will give a presentation on buildings that increase energy efficiency, make us of renewable energy, reduce water consumption and run-off, maximize the use of natural light, and provide healthy living and work environments. Co-sponsored by AFSC-SENE.
Due to predictions of intense thunderstorms, the picnic will take place at Providence Friends Meeting, corner of Olney and Morris St. Providence. Same time. Same great food and people. Bring instruments. We'll still have fun!
We will provide: the main course, good breads, and beverages; the farm will provide beautiful seasonal fresh organic veggies.
You bring: a picnic blanket or chairs, eating utensils (including plates), a dessert to share, and musical instruments.
