Upper Green Side Lecture: Ben Jervey

Upper Green Side takes stock of its accomplishments for the month and plans ahead for the next month at its regular monthly meeting. Also, this month a special guest speaker: Ben Jervey, author of "The Big Green Apple" who will present ideas on how to make a difference in our lives and in our community.

About Ben:

Ben Jervey is a freelance writer and environmental consultant who has been working towards a sustainable life in New York City for over four years. He recently released a book to help others do the same--The Big Green Apple: Your Guide to Eco-Friendly Living in New York City. Mr. Jervey also writes regularly about environmental issues and has been published in The New York Daily News, Vermont Magazine, GOOD Magazine, and many other online and print publications. He also works for Solar One, a non-profit renewable energy, arts and education center committed to inspiring New Yorkers to become more environmentally-aware. Before moving to The Big Apple, he lived in Vermont. There, his interest in urban environmental issues began at Middlebury College where he sat on the school's Environmental Council and studied Environmental Studies and Geography, eventually presenting a thesis on Green Cities.

This would be a great introduction to people just starting to get interested in leading a more sustainable life. Please invite and bring friends and relatives to this meeting.
