Chamber of Commerce is organizing an event called “Greening Richmond – A
Community Battles Global Warming,” Sunday, October 21st, from 1-5 p.m.
at DeJean Middle School in Richmond.
This event is designed to help residents and business owners learn about
global warming and they can do to battle it. It is something like the
Green Fest in San Francisco but much smaller and with a far greater
Greening Richmond will begin with a forty-minute program. It will then
feature displays from businesses that offer products and services such
as solar panels, energy-efficient lights and fixtures, biodiesel fuel,
tankless water heaters, low flush toilets and sustainable household
products. It will include organizations such as SmartLights (which helps
small businesses convert to compact fluorescent lights), EBMUD, and
BART, as well as local conservation groups.
Sierra Magazine columnist Bob Schildgen ("Hey Mr. Green!"),
Award-winning green architect David Arkin, Assemblywoman Loni Hancock
