Community Project Policy
When, where and why we take on community projects:
We take on community projects when we can, depending upon how busy we are and how strongly we identify with the project or proponent’s mission. We will look at projects anywhere but will consider our carbon footprint when it comes to how we respond. Why do we do it? We believe in lending a helping hand as we work towards a delightfully diverse, safe, healthy and just world, with clean air, water, soil and power—economically, equitably, ecologically and elegantly enjoyed.
