Trekking to Everest Base Camp:

An Adventure for the Body, Mind and Spirit 

 

February 24th from 6:00-7:30PM

 

It's no surprise a trek to Mount Everest is a physical challenge, but it's more than training and having strong lungs and legs along the way. It's an incredible journey filled with emotion, personal reflection, human connection, cultural experiences, and utter AWE. Join us for this fun and visual presentation and conversation told from the deeply personal perspectives of two Fredericksburg residents, Jim Keesling and Suzanna Hasnay.

 

Ticket: $10

About Project Green Homes:

 

When somebody visits Kathmandu for the first time they are struck by the beautiful temples, bold and vibrant colors, and the atmosphere, but unfortunately all of these are overshadowed by excessive pollution throughout the city.  Kathmandu faces vast environmental challenges such as poor management of solid, plastic, and biodegradable waste, pollution of water resources, worsening air pollution, lack of open green spaces and sustainable agriculture, intensifying urban heat island effect, increasing vegetable prices, and of course adding to the growing climate crisis.  All these issues are compounded by the lack of public awareness concerning the effects of individuals and their environmental footprint.

 

Project Green Homes aims to provide a solution to these critical issues.  The project will last one year, include 50 homeowners across two Kathmandu city wards, and will focus on three phases. 

 

  • Phase 1: Solid Waste Management and Rooftop Gardening
  • Phase 2: Wash and Pollution Mitigation
  • Phase 3: Skill Development and Livelihood

 

Participants will be educated, re-educated, and trained in various techniques to transform their homes into eco-friendly and sustainable properties.  Participants will learn about various topics, including sustainable solid waste management, up cycling plastic waste to create new marketable products, rainwater harvesting and recharge, rooftop gardening and sustainable farming techniques, wash training to protect from water borne diseases, and more!  Project Green Homes aims to not only improve environmental sustainability but also to reduce expenditure and supply additional income.  Upon the successful completion of the initial 50 homes, the project will expand to additional wards.

You are going to be happy with your purchase.  Trust me, I know these things.  However, if your new gear doesn’t bring you joy, like a cold banana smoothie on a hot summer’s day, then return it for a replacement or a refund.  Don’t ruin it for the next person – make sure your item is unused and returned without destroying the packaging.  We’re not animals here!

I’m feeling generous so I’m going to give you 90-days to make a return.  Plenty of time for your mate to forgot you purchased it then you can casually slip it into your gear bag and forget all about returning it in the first place.  No judgment from this monkey.

Don’t be cheap…I can’t accept returns on clearance or consignment items.  Even this monkey has its limits.  Just give it to your best mate as a birthday or holiday gift.  Like they say around here…pass the adventure on!

Ok, enough from me, now buy the thing already.
