This month, Ubuntu Green was honored by the Sacramento Environmental Commission for its community outreach and education work. Specifically, the Commission noted Ubuntu Green’s successful Green Oak Park 2010 Event, which highlighted ways in which residents can live Green and healthy lifestyles, through live healthy cooking demonstrations; a community garden build; a free CFL light bulb exchange and more. Last year’s event was attended by over 200 community members and received accolades from Mayor Kevin Johnson and Congresswoman Doris Matsui for raising awareness of sustainable living.
The Commission also cited Ubuntu Green’s work in establishing its Green Youth Leadership Team (GYLT), which draws talented and motivated students from Sacramento high schools and gives them the tools to be environmental stewards through education and hands-on work in the community.
Ubuntu Green’s President and CEO Charles L. Mason, Jr. accepted the award, and remarked, “This is an outstanding honor to be recognized by the Commission for our work in the community. We share this award with all of the members of our community who are taking the initiative to lead healthier lives.”
