Houston’s Green Building Resource Center

Steve Stelzer, Program Director, Green Building Resource Center


In July, we welcome Steve Stelzer, Program Director for Houston’s Green Building Resource Center. Steve is an architect with 30 years’ experience who is focused on making Houston a greener place to live and work. 

He will discuss the center’s work to educate the public on healthy and energy, water, and material-conserving design & construction. This mission is accomplished in a number of ways: a showroom highlighting building components, water conservation, site, and energy efficiency, monthly educational seminars on a wide variety of topics, and plan review services to suggest strategies to conserve energy and water, save money, & create a healthier building environment. The center also hosts a green book discussion group, holds periodic rain barrel and composter sales, offers Master Composter classes, educates on Drawdown (ways to combat climate change), how to achieve zero waste, and many other green living topics. 

Come learn how the center can help you to go green not only with building design and construction, but also operations & maintenance, whether for a residential or commercial property. Get all your green building questions answered! 

Please register for this talk, and you will receive an invitation to the web meeting.

Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 7 p.m. – Saturday, Dec. 1, 7 p.m. 

Cramer Retreat Center 
1800 Meadow Edge Lane 
Spring, TX 77388 

Escape from the frenzy of the start of the “Christmas shopping season” on an intimate, 24-hour retreat in the beauty of God’s good creation at the Cramer Retreat Center. This retreat invites you to get ready for the coming of Christ by exploring familiar Advent themes: hope, preparation, joy and peace, with the reconciliation of heaven and earth in mind. Consider how all creation longs for the coming of Christ, and how we are called to witness the Incarnation in our care of all God’s created world and all God’s creatures. Enjoy a time of renewal, reflection, recreation, and restoration on this retreat. The retreat is open to adults, and to youth 10+, when accompanied by an adult. Plan now to participate! Retreat cost is $60 (+ ticketing fees), which covers 3 meals on Saturday, overnight lodging & a reception on Friday evening. Space is limited, so please register early. For more information, contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com.
