Last Call for Tomorrow's Workshop: Exploring Indoor Air Quality Through Whole Living

Grab your tickets now for tomorrow's workshop as our regenerative design series continues from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16 with Exploring Indoor Air Quality Through Whole Living led by Sean Sullivan of Living Stone Design + Build and Laura Sullivan of ID.ology Interiors & Design.

This course will introduce the concept of whole living. We'll explore the dangers that selections and furnishings can present to your home, as well as identify the pollutants that contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) during the construction process. This class will identify construction practices that reduce particulates and increase IAQ, and present soluations to furnish a home. CE credits available!
