Hamilton County Herald | Spring 2019

We were recently featured on the front page of the Hamilton County Herald in a story by David Laprad. “Just under 80 percent of the petroleum we use is produced to drive our cars. We also tend to live in single, detached houses with a yard and garage. If we want grocery stores closer to where we live, we have to build those, too. And what about hospitals, restaurants and hotels?” she asks. “These are the things our city needs to keep growing, but we also have to consider their impact on the environment. “That’s what helps me sleep at night. I recognize I’m part of the problem but I’m also trying to do something about it.”

Panelist | Fall 2018

We participated as a panelist in a discussion about Ecology and Place as part of the CIVIQ series, held by Reflection Riding and the Chattanooga Design Studio. Florence Williams, author of The Nature Fix, was a panelist alongside Circadian Consulting, the Tennessee Trust for Public Land, the Chattanooga Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, and WMWA Landscape Architects.

CityScope magazine | Fall 2018

We are honored to be considered a “Mover and Shaker” in the most recent edition of City Scope Magazine.

“Klagstad was pleasantly surprised at how welcoming the local business community has been. “I expected to have to work harder to make business connections. I even expected some push back, but everyone hops right in and helps out. Particularly, the Small Business Development Center, INCubator, and the Chamber have been so helpful,” she says.”


Edge Magazine | Spring 2018

We were recently featured in Edge Magazine, Chattanooga’s Business Magazine and sister publication to the Times Free Press. The article focused on our partnership with the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative.

"…the amount of sustainable alternatives available to us are endless. We just need to start implementing them."
