Learn more about this first-of-its-kind organization and facility and their plans to “bridge the gap” between thinking and doing in the area of sustainability in Nicole’s interview with
Jennifer Tlumak the Executive Director at Urban Green Lab.
Their mission is to facilitate a range of educational and social programs that inspire participants from all socioeconomic backgrounds to make sustainability a bigger part of their lives–in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses. With their center in East Nashville’s Inglewood Community they will offer hands-on workshops for people of all ages on a range of topics, from home weatherization to urban agriculture, which will help citizens reduce their environmental impact, save money, and improve the health of their families. Urban Green Lab will showcase green design, interactive displays, and a working community garden.
