She brings that passion into her work designing earth-conscious edible landscapes for residential and community projects.

While a home solar system can be a great investment, not every home is suitable for a solar installation. New York residents have the opportunity to sign up for community solar, but the options can be confusing. This presentation will provide an overview of solar options by Sustainable Warwick along with descriptions of contrasting community models by representatives of Solstice and SunCommon. Join us to learn how the worst alternative for consumers is to decline a solar option.
Extraordinary vocalist Rhonda Denet, accompanied by the Silver Fox Songs Trio, will perform a collection of jazz standards and soul classics that spans 5 decades.

This is an outdoor performance, weather permitting: please bring a lawn chair, blanket or towel to sit on if you like. In case of rain, the performance will be in the Community Room, and the first 80 people who registered will be seated.
