St. David's Green Mission, With Photos!

St. David's Episcopal Church of Austin is truly leading Austin’s green community. In 2012 they became not only Austin's first "certified" congregation, but also the first recipients of the City’s platinum award for its "Austin Green Business Leaders Program." 

On Tuesday, Feb. 5, leaders from St. David's Environmental Guild and the City of Austin will describe what it means to be a green certified congregation and how to get there. More info here. Official invite here. (You're invited!)
