Founder and first Chair of SEEDS, Michele is a retired librarian, English and technology teacher from New York City, first in the public school system, then at Ethical Culture Fieldston School. Investing her retirement savings in her future, she and her husband insulated their old farm house in northern Wayne County, then installed geothermal and solar photo voltaic panels—and she drives a Prius. She walks before she talks. She, her husband Art Goldberg and son Ben ran the non-profit Fair Hill Farm therapeutic riding facility in Tyler Hill, PA until 2020 when she and Art retired to Maryland. Michele was instrumental in forming the Clean Energy Co-op, a spin-off from SEEDS. Thank you, Michele for your vision and passion in starting SEEDS in your living room!
