By the way, the Green Team is being featured at Tuesday’s City Council Meeting as one of the Riverside Neighborhood Partnership’s (RNP) neighborhood success stories. I think one of the biggest successes is how it’s created an opening for these types of connections citywide.
Thanks for voting. I really appreciate the support from the RNP board members in getting the word out.

Many of these offerings are PR initiatives designed for social networking connections to build or support brand awareness.
We all know there’s too much corporate money out there, nevertheless, we’ll be happy to take some of it off their hands and leverage it into something far more valuable than money. At the very least we’ll invent a far richer standard for profit.
