About SEEDS

SEEDS mission is to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable living in our communities. We do this through virtual and physical community forums and workshops, free residential and nonprofit energy assessments, and environmental education programs for children, adults and professionals. We also serve as a platform for sustainability information and news.

When we began working in 2008, we were just a small group of passionate, engaged community members that took on the challenge of creating a local market for renewables and expanding energy efficiency adoptions.

Today, our community is home to 10+ buildings powered by solar PV thanks to SEEDS and its endorsers, and more and more residents and farmers are choosing sustainability over the status quo.

“Not only is sustainable energy about solar, wind, geothermal, and so forth, but about each of us doing our part to plant, tend, and grow our community-our plot of planet Earth. I am so grateful that so many others in SEEDS have kept on planting, tending, and growing.”

- Michele Sands, SEEDS founder
