Windmill

Greening Our Urban Environments

Articles

Windmill is committed to building the green development movement through awareness and education. That is why we continually gather useful, up-to-date information found here in our resource library and in our blog. We hope this information will inspire and empower others to learn more and spread the word on the benefits of developing green urban environments.

We are also actively involved in the community. If you would like us to talk to your group please contact us and supply us with all the relevant information on the nature of your request. We will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss in detail.
