Reflections on the Indiana Green Expo Presentation

Recently, I spoke at the Indiana Green Expo, where I presented “Sustainable Landscapes.

According to feedback from audience members, the presentation was very informative.

They shared with me that some of the most useful and informative points were:Natural Water Cycle Image

  • New architectural design concepts incorporating “green” technology
  • Water reuse and end collection
  • Release of sewer water into local waterways with as little as ¼” of rainfall
  • Real-life examples of rainwater harvesting
  • Adventures in green industry are at an exciting point
  • People were surprised at the usefulness of landscapes in remediating environmental issues

I also learned people are interested in hearing more about:

  • Becoming local experts in rainwater management
  • Learning more  about air conditioning condensate recovery
  • In-depth training on how to construct rain gardens and install permeable paving

I truly enjoyed speaking at the Indiana Green Expo for such an energetic and enthusiastic crowd. The Indiana Green Expo (IGE) is Indiana’s most comprehensive green industry educational conference and trade show. The Indiana Green Expo had great educational sessions, a great audience, and a great show!

I look forward to my next speaking engagement on “Applying Smart Technologies to Rainwater Harvesting, Green Roofs, LEED Projects and Storm Water Issues” at Irrigation Association’s Irrigation Contractor Leadership summit at Walt Disney World, February 2–4.
