SOME PROUD MOMENTS

SEEDS, along with Wayne County Habitat for Humanity volunteers, helped install the first solar system on a Habitat home in the state of PA! It was a solar thermal (hot water heating) system, installed in 2014 with the help of SEEDS Adviser and solar installer Blair Buselli. In 2016, we installed another system with Pike County Habitat for Humanity.

In 2016, SEEDS received a Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence. Our Wayne County Commissioners acknowledged our award and endorsed our efforts.

SEEDS will continue our work promoting sustainability for years to come, and we invite you to help make that possible.
