    I feel the same way as Brian but I’m on the opposite side of the state in Pittsburgh. Any ideas for organizations to check out in my neck of the woods?

      Hi Christy.
      PASA has a Western office and they conduct Master Classes. You can check them out at We will for sure have some Sustainability Schools programming in Western PA by the fall. So, if you haven’t already, fill out the information on the “Be in the know…” page and we’ll send you email updates.
      Thanks! Hannah

  4. These courses sound great! I wonder if there is an organizer for this kind of thing closer to the Philadelphia suburbs.

    I’d be happy to help organize and participate in any way possible. Quick ideas come to mind with organizations like my kids cub scout pack – educate the kids and adults at the same time :)
