What Participants Say

This is a great idea. I like having three things I can focus on this month…I plan on choosing three new things every month until I've checked off the entire list!
I think your efforts are wonderful! I am heartened to see my neighbors willing to try.
Thanks for doing this. This is a fun program!
Love this. I insulated my house using the information you gave me. I only paid $250 for my whole house!
The person who came to my home to sign me up was GREAT. She was very low-key, clear, well informed, encouraging, realistic, and nice. That's the kind of person I want to encourage me, and I believe my neighbors will respond to this too.
