A Presentation & Lecture By Alrie Middlebrook

sust urban village model graphic 020417Please join me for a Sierra Club presentation and discussion on a Sustainable Urban Village Model; A Biomimic Design.
Alrie Middlebrook's talk is based on a biomimic design model for low income, affordable and market rate housing.  This development project is integrating a six acre working farm combined with community native gardens and other sustainable technologies which has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 86%. Our non-profit, The California Native Garden Foundation is working in collaboration with Core Companies (http://santaclarasustainable.com), the city of Santa Clara, and our local communities to develop this integrative housing model on the former BAREC site. Please come to listen and share your ideas about this innovative first of its kind REAL model of a biomimicry development design.
