Nashville is a fast-growing city with a promising economic future. Economic development and environmental sustainability can and should work hand-in-hand. I support Urban Green Lab because it helps teach all of us – young, old, rich, poor – how we can live in a prospering city without sacrificing our environment and ourselves in the process.
As a volunteer for Urban Green Lab, I have been able to connect with like-minded individuals who are equally passionate about the environment, while working to help Nashville become a greener, more environmentally friendly place. It has been a hugely rewarding experience.
