Meadowlark Fundraising Campaign Launched Today!

Today marks the launch of our Indiegogo campaign to raise $50,000 to complete the Meadowlark Eco Demonstration Home!  Meadowlark is the second in GreenTown’s Chain of Eco-Homes.  Its most noteworthy design features are its construction with HIB blocks and its keeping with Passive House standards.  HIB blocks have not yet been used on a building in America and Passive House is still a burgeoning concept on this side of the Atlantic, so Meadowlark is groundbreaking in many ways!  When construction began on Meadowlark, all the funds were secured, but an unforeseen turn of events with our primary funding source left GreenTown in need of having to raise additional monies in order to complete the house. The $50,000 will go towards:

  • Siding
  • Triple Pane Windows
  • Exterior Doors
  • Installation

All of these items will be tremendous assets to protect the house to protect it from the elements.

Right now, Meadowlark looks like this:


But we’re hoping to get it to look like this and be open to the public before too long:

Please help GreenTown realize this goal by donating (even $10 will help us out) and sharing our campaign at http://www.indiegogo.com/savemeadowlark. Thank you for your support!
