What Besides a Banana is Appealing?

We are! Bay Area Green Tours is appealing to you today to consider making a tax-deductible contribution. Our work is a passionate endeavor to connect people to local, sustainable "solution-aries" in fields such as agriculture, energy, waste, transportation, green jobs, social entrepreneurship and more. However for us to remain sustainable ourselves, we really do need your support! We hope you’ll consider making a tax deductible contribution to help us continue our work. And much gratitude to those who have already donated.

Inspiring Young Visionaries

Here’s just one example: In 2011 while on a BAGT tour with Berkeley High School’s Green Academy, Ben Johnson first realized his passion for sustainable design and green architecture. Now a third year architecture major at Cal Poly, Ben is grateful for this vital influence on his life: "I came back from the BAGT Green Building Tour stunned. From that day on, I knew that I wanted my career focus to be sustainable architecture and design.”
Check out our educational tours and a video of Ben’s inspiring video testimonial HERE
