DIY Minneapolis/St. Paul is a forum for Minneapolitans and St. Paulites to share ideas and develop viable solutions to the problems our Cities face. It's founded on the notion that we don't have to wait for someone to do the job for us - anyone can develop an innovative program and change the way we live for the better.
In the vein of Do-It-Yourself projects and community improvement, I think that the workshop series we are starting at the Green Institute will be great in educating homeowners and businesses about simple and practical ways to save energy.
Coming up we have:
REUSE-ENERGY WORKSHOP ON WINDOW REHABBING ON MARCH 4!
This workshop will help homeowners choose the right option for improving the performance of their windows. Window restoration specialist Paul Schmidt of Twin Cities-based Restoration Window Systems will cover temporary or permanent fixes to reduce heat loss and air infiltration on existing windows, reversing the effects of deterioration on historic wood windows and making an appropriate window replacement. Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 4 from 6:30 - 8 PM at 2801 21st Avenue South, Minneapolis. RSVP to Agatha Vaaler (firstname.lastname@example.org 612.278.7142 ). Cost is $15, which can be paid at the door or in advance. Refreshments will be provided.
Hope you check it out!
