I believe in my community’s strength. It is up to us to make individual and cultural changes to preserve our natural surroundings. My new home supports local artisans, products, and finishes that contribute towards a sustainable future. We have wallcoverings with material made from post-consumer recycled glass, and shelving that saved local trees from being turned into mulch or thrown in landfills.
My home is not only a representation of my style, but also my values and the neighborhood that I love.
We know that local initiatives can produce a global impact. The Vicinity’s energy usage is offset by two solar garden
s built by Sherman Associates in Carver and Dakota County. These two gardens generate 7 megawatts of power, providing clean fuel to Xcel Energy available for The Vicinity and all of Sherman’s properties in Hennepin County.
