The Como Green VillageTM is an umbrella concept that SECIA is promoting in the urban island of Southeast Como in Minneapolis (an industrial, railroad, and highway-locked neighborhood).
It is based on core principles related to sustainability. While there are many definitions of sustainability, they all involve providing a balance between the environment, economics, and social justice. When all three are working together in harmony those activities become 'sustainable' and can then be carried forward into the future indefinitely.
Since SECIA's inception, environmental initiatives have always been a priority driving the organization to undertake novel efforts such as: tree planting, air quality program, opening new community gardens, organic lawn care, clothesline give-aways, building rain barrels & GrowBarrelsTM and our Solar Pilot Project.
