Grades of Green’s first two Eco Salons were a resounding success in gathering people from those communities to learn all about the work Grades of Green is doing to inspire and empower kids and the broader school community to care for the environment.  The events also highlighted how the Palos Verdes and Pacific Palisades school communities can get involved in greening their schools.  The Palos Verdes Eco Salon, hosted at the Swanton’s home, included Terry Tamminen signing his latest book, JJ The Whale, and the Grades of Green Youth Corps sharing their latest projects.   The Pacific Palisades EcoSalon, hosted by the Cortese family, highlighted the work of one Youth Corps member in particular, whose Grades of Green work led her all the way to the White House to meet President Obama!
