A Farewell from our Executive Director, Catherine Crowell
To the Green Project Community -
It is with a mixture of excitement and sadness that I announce my departure from the Green Project and New Orleans as I begin a new adventure in Atlanta.
During the past three years, those that have walked through our warehouse gates have consistently inspired me. With the return of Salvations, 30 incredible pieces of creativity exhibited the raw potential that everyday items can carry. The unveiling of our MakerSpace brought empowerment and skills to our residents from the Girl Scouts receiving their Woodworking Badge to longtime homeowners learning how to repair drywall patches. This year, over 1 million pounds of building materials were diverted from the landfills thanks to the tireless work of the GP staff, over 1,000 volunteers, and our members that take on the scavenger hunt/shopping experience within our store.
The Green Project is in a great position to continue growing the culture of creative reuse throughout southeast Louisiana. I am proud to leave the organization with the committed team of staff, volunteers, Board of Directors, and Green Project members that make our mission happen every day! Please check out the Executive Director job posting and consider whether you or someone you know might be a good fit to lead this amazing team.
I am forever grateful and honored to have been given the opportunity to guide this incredible organization and will watch with excitement to see what it accomplishes in the next 25 years!
All my best,
