Showing the rainwater harvesting system to participants at the Beth Or Eco-Expo
Iâve had the opportunity to take the âRain Guyâ show on the road over the past two months â educating at different trade shows, schools, and expos. In January, I spoke at Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture about the rainwater harvesting systems that Cedar Run Landscapes has been utilizing for our company, and building for our customers. At the end of the month, I attended the Eco-Expo at the Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen as a rainwater harvesting exhibitor. It was a great event that brought togetherÂ other “green building” professionals and retailers, nonprofit advocacy groups, a native plant nursery, etc.
EP Henry invited me to speak at several conferences in January and February on the integration of our rainwater harvesting systems with permeable paver patios and rain gardens. Those stops included their Mid-Atlantic hard-scaping trade show in Virginia, as well as conferences in Lancaster and Atlantic City.
In addition to speaking regionally about rainwater harvesting, Iâve recently joined the Delaware Valley Green Building Council, a local division of the U.S. Green Building Council, which developed the LEED rating system for certification of green buildings. Iâm hoping to broaden my network of contacts that are on the forefront of sustainable design and construction efforts in the Philadelphia area.
Â Itâs been great to be able to share my experience and expertise with interested audiences, and to meet colleagues who are participating in these important environmental measures! Staying in the loop is important in this field that is constantly growing. Last month I sent out my first issue of the Cedar Run Landscapes e-newsletter; a new method of keeping in contact with my customers, colleagues, and friends.
