Welcome our new Executive Director

Caduto sitting (Greg Nesbit Photography)The Sustainable Woodstock Board is excited to welcome Michael Caduto, our incoming executive director. Michael comes to Sustainable Woodstock with nearly 30 years of experience as an environmental advocate and educator, as well as a strong background in nonprofit leadership. He has devoted his life to bringing people closer to the natural world and helping others better understand the role that we all play in its stewardship. An author, environmental educator, community organizer, storyteller, and ecologist — Michael is perhaps best known as the creator and co-author of the “Keepers of the Earth” series of books, as well as a number of other environmental books. His feature stories and op-eds have been published in major newspapers and magazines, including Reuters International. He is the founder and director of PEACE (Programs for Environmental Awareness & Cultural Exchange), which offers a wide range of programs related to sustainability, natural history, ecology, and world cultural traditions. Most recently, he held the position of director of the Friends of the Morrill Homestead in Strafford, Vermont. He and his wife, Marie, live on a small farm in Reading.


Its time to Button-Up your home!

Woodstock Button-Up Launch Event!

Halloween can be scary with all the monsters, and resurrected movie characters running around, but it is also an indicator of something far scarier, HIGH HEATING BILLS! Stop Count Vapid, the heat-sucking vampire, from visiting your home this winter. Area residents are invited to join Sustainable Woodstock and Efficiency Vermont for our Button-Up launch event to learn more about the program, how to save money on your energy bills, to be more cozy in your home, to reduce your carbon footprint, and sign up for a free energy visit with Van de Ven Construction LLC, our partner contractor. Residents sign up by completing a brief survey before December 15 (Visit www.buttonupvermont.org/weatherize to complete the survey). Walk-throughs will be completed between November and March. Pizza, Door Prizes, and treats will be provided!
