It’s a sign of the times. Like the rest of the country and world, Fairfield’s interest in environmental issues is flourishing. Recently, some of the town’s “green” group leaders met to discuss a more effective way of working together to support each other’s efforts.
Janak Desai, founder of Sustainable Fairfield, is a Civil Engineer, IT Project Manager, Yoga instructor, and Master Gardener. He started the email group in 2010 as a way to allow various green groups to work together and help spread the word about environmental issues of concern, to notify others about upcoming town events, and to assist in building advocacy efforts related to the environment, healthy food, gardening, and more.
