Trish Holder

Heating and air-conditioning industry consultant and writer Trish Holder will speak Saturday to members of the National Association of Environmental Law Societies at the group’s annual conference.

The association’s annual conference is Thursday-Saturday at Vermont Law School campuses in Burlington and South Royalton, Vt.

Holder’s presentation, “ ‘Greenspiration’: How to Have Your Home and Green it, Too,” will chronicle her experiences building an environmentally responsible, yet traditional-looking house in Greensboro, N.C.

“Most middle-class homeowners aren’t willing to sacrifice comfort or appearance for the sake of building green. Through Greenspiration, I hope to demonstrate that you don’t have to,” Holder said.
