Hi! Go Green NOLA is the guide for the New Orleans community on how to build and live green. We hope to introduce you to new ways of thinking and living because we know one person can make a difference in her/his community ( here’s proof ). We also highlight the many people and organizations making a positive and green change in this city. So, Go Green NOLA!
Go Green NOLA was started by Lillian Lovich / Good Egg Web Studio in November 2007. Lillian was born and raised in New Orleans. She is a logician/philosopher by education and a web/interface designer by employment. Thanks to her Croatian father’s life-long love of gardening, Lillian knows how to pick a tasty orange and to outsmart bluejays for figs. She’s only just realized that everyone does not have a backyard mini-orchard (like her dad’s). But she thinks they should! When Lillian is not working on this website, she’s either being crafty, walking her dog Stella, or learning to speak French.
