Course Description
This course will discuss several products, including what they are made from, where they are made, how "green" they are, and how one can create more sustainable long lasting designs through their usage. Attendees will see slides of installed and un-installed products, along with before and after shots. Products areas will include: green fencing and building materials, artistic and structural design solutions, lighting, and solutions to collect and re-use water in the landscape. A list of West Coast events will also be given so that attendees may continue to increase their knowledge of "Green" building materials.

At an early age Theodora was put to work doing many things that most people considered "men's work". Her father and mother delegated tasks like changing truck tires and tossing bales of hay, but Theodora also worked with her dad, helping build their little fishing boat "Drift Wood", planting vegetable gardens, helping install canvas products on pleasure yachts, installing awnings, and more.

Today, Theodora Michialides is an entrepreneur who likes to challenge her clients and business associates to question their preconceived ideas, and to think outside the box. The last sixteen years have been spent building Living Art Landscape Designs, a Fresno based landscape design and contracting company devoted to the creation of exquisite landscapes in the central California valley, the SF Bay area, the Monterrey Peninsula, and California's central coast.

In May 2009, after years of research, self study, and a desire to inspire people to shift towards sustainable landscaping choices, Michialides started a second company, Living Green Design Solutions, which sells and distributes green, sustainable, and ecofriendly products and materials to pacific coast states.
