PowerPoint Presentation : OPEN Microphone Stream Carole Hurst , MS in Education Wellness Educator, Environmentalist, and organic gardener! Carole has always been upset by how we treat our earth. As a child she hated to see the litter along the road. So as a teacher in the 70's she involved her students and parents in street clean up projects and recycling. She continued doing this with her own kids when she became an at home Mom and a 4-H Shaklee leader. Her husband, Randy and Carole had a dream to create a lifestyle that would be showing how much they care about the earth. She is excited to share what she and her husband have done, from the simple things like the products they use in their homes and personal lives, to how to plan out building a new home and landscaping the property for the least amount of impact on the environmen t.
