who “breaks bricks for Christ.”
Local green designer Joshua Foss, just
returned from an appearance on HGTVâ€™s hit show, “Design
Star,” will discuss the benefits of “going green,”
from increased health benefits, to lower heating, energy and water
bills. Heâ€™ll also talk about green building as a movement
and why it's important.
The Expo will feature up to 220 exhibitors

a healthy living environment. “Green” housing professionals
