Sustainable Growth Boise Green Goals

Energy Goals:
Our energy goals are as follows:
Use of waste vegetable oil: We plan on using waste vegetable oil as an alternate and sustainable energy source for fueling our vehicles (bio-diesel), and to run generators to create electricity for our business.
Solar:
We plan on installing solar panels in replacement of our awnings and/or on our roof to supplement our energy needs. We also plan on installing a solar water pump to irrigate our nursery business.
Conservation: We strive to keep lights out as much as possible during daylight hours, utilizing our ample sunlight from south facing windows.
Encouraging community to plant Victory Gardens to become self-sufficient and keeping food local and with less energy use from transport.

Water Goals:
We will be installing a rain catchment system to reclaim water from the roof of the nursery, as well as the run-off from the greenhouses, and use the water to irrigate our nursery plants. New toilets are extra-low water use. Water filtration for drinking water is passive (Berkey) system instead of soft or R/O water which create waste and pollution.
