Join us for a free hands-on skill share in partnership with the faith-based group Interfaith Power and Light. We’ll be working together to to weatherize our building while also offering a working example of how to translate these techniques for your own home or rental property.
Matt Poe of the United States Green Building Council will be leading the workshop and will lead participants in simple, DIY techniques for ensuring that your older home stays warm and saves energy. You’ll leave the workshop with the tools and skills needed to make changes in your own property as well as a free goody bag filled with LED lightbulbs.
Interfaith Power and Light will also be providing all participants with a free lunch at Tarascos in downtown Dardanelle.
The Arkansas Affiliate of Interfaith Power and Light is established by individuals and participating congregations who share a concern for the earth’s environment from a unique, nonpartisan, theological perspective. In addition to leading this workshop they are also working with the McElroy House to raise money for our weatherization work, enabling our center to be a working example of affordable and sustainable green retrofitting.
Once complete our building will serve as a working example for home owners, renters, and landlords seeking to make similar changes to their own properties. The McElroy House is working alongside Interfaith Power and Light to seek donations earmarked for this work. Donations of 100.00 or more will have their names engraved on bricks for our walkway. If you’re interested in making a donation to our green building fund, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
