Green House Team Presents to Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at California State University Long Beach
By Claire Lucas / Posted on May 14th, 2016
Green House team members were honored to share their wisdom and insight about the Green House model on the evening of May 11th— the presentation was part of the Successful Aging Lecture Series, a program made possible through the generous donation by Lori and Don Brault.
Green House Project Guide, Claire Lucas moderated the panel of staff from Mt. San Antonio Gardens in Pomona, California. A large group of interested community members were eager to learn about the model and to hear the special stories from the team members.
Andrea Tyck, Diana Marohn, Amanda Phos & Mary Jean Neault shared personal experiences working in the Green House homes. Mary Jean was able to share her insight both as a staff member and former family member. The audience was touched by their stories and eager to learn more about Green House homes, as evidenced by the swarm of people who stood in line to talk to staff from Mt. San Antonio Gardens after the program!
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a national organization that offers widely varied courses of interest to persons 50 years of age or older. There is no academic prerequisite for admission or to participate in the classes, just a desire to learn.
California currently has two Green House Project homes in the state. We are hopeful with California’s plans to release new “Small House Regulations” that many more will be built in the future!
