Sustainability @ Taa-naash-kaa-da
Taa-naash-kaa-da is moves forward as a green business, and construction on new eco-friendly lodging will begin in upcoming year!
December 19, 2013 – YEW is thrilled to announce that Taa-naash-kaa-da, our 76+ acre Sanctuary in San Miguel County, is moving forward as a green business—partnering with Permaculture Sustainability experts from the Regenerative Design Institute, 7 Generations Natural Builders, and Salt Creek Acres. This voluntary move will implement environmentally responsible practices. Our goal is to meet higher standards of environmental performance such as using energy efficient processes, conserving water, recycling, using recycled products, reducing pollutants, and much more.
Partnering with these leaders in the field of Permaculture Sustiainbility, allows us to not only utilize extended family knoweldge resources, but continue our teachings of traditional earth ways. This move is one component of the Taa-naash-kaa-da Sanctuary Coalition’s wider commitment to sustainability and caring for the earth and its inhabitants, and to developing Taa-naash-kaa-da into a world-class model of sustainability.
Eco-friendly Lodging and Landscape
In collaboration with Salt Creek Acres, we are planning to incorporate earth-friendly renewable resources—like solar, recycled building materials, and water reclamation systems—into a new ship house lodging and tsupport for the water of the landscape. The first stage of this development, which includes new lodging, we expect to begin early in 2014.
