Jonathan Scherch, core faculty in the MA Programs in Leadership and Change, is part of this year’s Seattle Solar Tour, presented by Solar Washington, as part of the ASES National Solar Tour, the world’s largest grassroots solar event. The Solar Tour aims to help people explore the rich opportunities for green energy being created by innovative businesses, organizations and families.

His off-grid home includes a deck made of FSC-certified sustainably-harvested cedar and a rainwater catchment providing drip irrigation to terrace gardens and permaculture design “edible landscape.” For more about the home, including pictures, visit this page.
