Sustainable Households

Urban Green Lab’s Households Division works closely with nonprofit organizations, neighborhood associations, and faith groups to develop systems of sustainable living education to make it a permanent part of everything you do. This is accomplished through organizing green teams, personalized training, connecting your organization to resources that help make the difference and more. No matter your social sector or community served, we can work together to help make Nashville a more just and sustainable city.
