Guild Hosts Wine & Cheese Event

April 17, 2010

The Green Building Guild of Yamhill County is hosting a talk by architect Nathan Good, timed to coincide with Earth Day.

The event is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 20, at the Lemelson Winery, 12020 Stagg Hollow Road in Carlton. It will feature wine and cheese-tasting, live music and a tour of the winemaking facility in addition to Good’s talk.

Board member Wendy Stassens said the new organization is still working to establish its membership process. It is already offered programs specifically designed for the building industry, but is aimed this one at a general audience.

The evening is intended for “anybody at any level of experience and interest,” she said. There is no cover or admission charge, she said.

A former sustainable development designer at CH2M HILL, Good opened Nathan Good Architects PC, with offices in Portland and Salem, five years ago. He specializes in sustainable designs, and has won numerous awards for his work.

According to his website, Good also managed the first commercial green building certification program in the nation for Portland General Electric, and founded Green Building Services, a consulting firm.
