Leading the trend in green building, one local company rescues building materials and landscaping in residential renovation projects, often giving materials away. Enter greenGoat, a green demolition charity that has redistributed reusable building materials, including garden plants, that would otherwise get dumped. To date, the organization has channeled over 700 tons of material back into reuse and shows no signs of slowing. Donor homes get a tax deduction, and adopting homes get a very good deal, making this matchmaking exercise a winner. Amy Bauman, greenGoat’s founder and director, shared stories and strategies at the joint March meeting of Millis Garden Club and Norfolk Garden Club.
