Green Alliance is a non-profit 501 (c)(3)
made up of a coalition of people
in the Greater Alliance Area who have come together to help Alliance
plan a sustainable environment for all of us now and for our children
in the decades ahead.
mission is to develop
recommendations and strategies to fulfill the U. S.
Protection Agreement with the City of Alliance, and to establish
various entities of government, education, business,
industry and among citizens to educate and empower
the greater Alliance
community with the goal of developing as an
socially and economically sustainable community.
According to this statement, our mission
takes on not only the consequences of global warming but also the wider
challenge of building a “sustainable community.” A widely used and
helpful definition of “sustainability” is the one developed by the
Brundtland Commission: sustainable development is development that
“meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of
future generations to meet their own needs.
We welcome anyone in the Greater
Alliance Community to join with us in our work. Below, find
information about our organization and a list of easily accessible web
sites for further information on building a sustainable future.

"Aquaponics" Lance Schmidt is
the director of the NeoHaus institute (www.TheNeoHaus.com)
and is currently designing and building Aquaponic systems in the Akron
Canton area to grow plants all year round with aquaponics. Aquaponics
is like hydroponics except that fish is grown and then the fish water
is pumped into gravel "grow beds" to supply nutrients and water for the
plants. The plants grow faster and bigger in this type of system. The
great part is it is totally organic and is totally sustainable.
