The Sustainable Living Association is dedicating its year-end fundraising campaign to offering affordable year-round workshops to the community in 2014. In tandem with Colorado Gives Day on Dec. 10, the project will continue with additional information and updates on Community Funded.
SLA’s campaign is part of an ongoing mission to make up for the 75 workshops and education opportunities missed due to flooding during the annual fair in September. Rather than dwelling on what was lost, SLA is looking to the future with the goal to offer year-round workshops at affordable prices in 2014 to give the community the skills and tools to live healthy, sustainably.
Through the Community Funded platform, SLA is asking the community to help raise the $5,000 needed to support the year-round workshop series in 2014. Workshops will include topics like the Wise Kitchen, Abundant Back Yard, Renewable Energy, Healthy Home and Sustainable Building series.
“Our organization has taken the lead in bringing the concept and practices of sustainable lifestyles into everyday life for the last fourteen years,” stated SLA Executive Director, Kellie Falbo. “The year-round workshops are an integral part of our mission, building knowledge and confidence in community members to seek out more sustainable options in their daily lives.”
As SLA approaches its 15th anniversary, the organization is dedicating year-end fundraising to bringing its expertise to the public with educational programs, community events and workshops. The workshops will focus on creative challenges that deliver valuable, long-term benefits for a wide range of community interests that improve the relationship between people and the environment.
At the forefront of the sustainable living and lifestyle movement in the Rocky
Mountain region, the SLA is an educational, nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower people and communities to make healthy, sustainable choices. For more information, visit www.sustainablelivingassociation.org.
