Thanks ALM! Appreciate your efforts to help people connect with resources for finding Green Careers.

Love to read how your career has evolved from researching in your free time to having a job that is all about green!

Shaking every (green) tree--in an attempt to find someone (relatively) nearby to design a green house (home) in Lancaster County, PA.
Can you help?

Carol, thanks for your comment! Glad to help.

KTdid, I don't know any near Lancaster, but you may want to check the USGBC directory on their website: you can search for architects, contractors, etc, by state www.usgbc.org

Also on the USGBC website you can get in touch with your local chapter, either Central PA or Delaware Valley (which includes Philly). Good luck!
