We made it back to the office on Tuesday. We had a small window leak which soaked some non-essential papers, but the office was essentially unharmed.
We know that many members of our environmental community, including nonprofits and individuals, did not fare as well. If you are with an environmental nonprofit and need a space to work near downtown, we’d be pleased to share our office with you. We have five workstations available, printers, and a conference table–and we always have chocolate.
The photo above is of the Urban Harvest farmers market on Eastside Drive this past Saturday. The farmers who were able to participate are grateful for your support, and Urban Harvest is working with other farmers to support their recovery. Urban Harvest tells me the Eastside market will be open again this coming Saturday. The fall season of their farmer’s market at City Hall will be delayed one week, until September 20, 2017. In the meantime, Urban Harvest, like many CEC member groups, is supporting relief efforts (with the Houston Food Bank, for example) and continuing to recruit volunteers through VolunteerHouston.org.
We have tried to confirm the events listed below, but not all organizations have updated their websites. Please consider confirming directly with the hosts.
CEC soliciting film submissions Please consider submitting a short film (under 7 minutes) for possible inclusion in CEC’s Greater Houston Environmental Film Contest on November 15, 2017. Winning entries will be shown at CEC’s showing of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour on January 24 & 25, 2018.
Interested in Joining CEC’s Board of Directors?
CEC is soliciting applications for its 2018 Board of Directors. We are looking for people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and help with our newsletter and website, events like the Film Festival and the Greater Houston Environmental Summit, fundraising, administration, and connecting our environmental community. It is arguably one of the best ways to learn about the amazing environmental work happening in the Houston region. To apply and learn more, please fill out our Volunteer Application online or send an email to [email protected], and we will follow up with you soon.
