Advocacy Incubator & Executive @ Green Plants for Green Buildings
Mary Golden works for the non-profit Green Plants for Green Buildings as an Advocacy Incubator.
Green Plants for Green Buildings core purpose is to communicate the aesthetic, wellbeing, and economic benefits of nature in the built environment. Their audiences are architects, designers, building and business owners, and other building specifiers.
Over the last several years Mary has been
- having conversations with building specifiers to discover their barriers to specifying plants and nature,
- writing continuing education curriculum for GPGB’s Registered Trainer programs to lower these barriers,
- and producing Seminars for Interiorscapers, all with the goal of bringing more nature indoors and creating a healthier future for us all.
Green Plants for Green Buildings ... Communicating the Aesthetic, Wellbeing and Economic Benefits of Nature in the Built Environment.
At Green Plants for Green Buildings, our purpose is communicating the aesthetic, environmental, productivity and health benefits of plants in the built environment. GPGB is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. Biophilia is the instinctive bond between human beings and other living organisms and living systems. Research suggests that buildings that contain features of preferred natural environments will be more supportive of human well-being and performance than those that do not contain these features.
