Getting Involved


LADC, local design/build and our PassiveHouse project are beginning to generate some interest around town!

I recently spoke at the Kootenay Climate Action Exchange in Castlegar to an audience made up of local and provincial government, non-profit organizations, eco-groups, educational institutions, and citizens. Judging by the number of questions at the end, I would say that PassiveHouse will find a warm reception in the Kootenay Region.

A few days after that event, we hosted a successful open house at the PassiveHouse building site where we had a chance to meet with a good cross section of interested individuals.

Soon after I was interviewed by Michael Jessen from The Nelson Daily newspaper, for an article featuring local professionals addressing issues of energy and the environment. I’ll be sure to share that link with you when it has been published.

Later on in the week I was asked by John Alton of the EcoSociety, to take part in a panel discussion around affordable sustainable housing, happening at Oso Negro cafe on November 22. Earlier today, as a lead-up to the panel discussion, John invited me onto his Kootenay Coop Radio show called “ecocentric”. To hear how that conversation went, click the play button below:
