What Do We Do?

Advocate and Promote Protecting and Preserving our Water Resources

Promote Local Food

Promote Reduction of Waste

Promote Alternative Transportation

Promote Renewable Energy

How?  By developing partnerships with existing organizations, local government, businesses, and citizens, and by offering opportunities to learn about why and how we can create a sustainable community that enhances our quality of life and promotes economic development.   Working together we can assure the sustainability of our community so that our children and grandchildren have the same healthy environment and quality of life that we expect for ourselves.  

Doing what?  Our initiatives now and for the coming year include (1) a major promotion of local food, (2) expanding commercial recycling, (3) promoting bus, bicycle, and other alternative transportation, (4) exploring ways to increase solar projects, and (5) doing some big Community Carbon Fund projects.  Now is the planning phase for a big year ahead!

How can YOU participate?

Let us know of your interest by emailing us at, or talk to any Board Member or Committee Chair, or call us at 597-9836.

Volunteer Spotlight

Debbie Gibson is an extraordinary Sustainable Tallahassee volunteer who serves as the Chair of our Community Carbon Fund.   There aren’t enough words to describe the creativity and hard work she contributes to the accomplishments and success of the Carbon Fund.

In addition to the Carbon Fund, Debbie actively volunteers with many of our Sustainable Tallahassee functions, going back to the 2010 First Light Energy Project.

But that’s not all of Debbie’s many accomplishments, which include 34 years as a classroom teacher, volunteering with the Leon County Food Coop (now New Leaf Market), seven years on the Habitat for Humanity board, and organization of a “Green Club” at Swift Creek Middle School.  Even more, she has had a major role with the Alternative Christmas Market for the entire 28 years of its existence, and she arranged for our Community Carbon Fund's participation.

Thank you, Debbie Gibson, for being such a committed leader in sustainability and for your efforts that make a difference for the people in our community!  We couldn’t have accomplished as much without your talents and the dedication of your time.

Local Seasonal Foods
by Anthony Gaudio, our Sustainable Tallahassee President

In September the only things coming out of my garden are peppers, basil, flowers, and herbs. So I head on out to the Frenchtown Heritage Fest and the Farmers market and see what they have.  I get a bag of shelled White Acre Peas from Sanguon’s Organics, a couple of tomatoes and an onion from Ed Duffy, and a package of mild Smoked Sausage from Limestone Meats to create this end of summer hearty stew.

If you have a favorite seasonal recipe that you would like to see used in this series, email me at"                                                                       Anthony Gaudio

Get Anthony's recipe for 
White Acre Peas and Smoked Sausage, or see all of his seasonal recipe contributions HERE.

Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration Campaign

Sustainable Tallahassee has signed the Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration because we value our waters and know that water is our state’s most precious - and most vulnerable - resource. 


The Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration Campaign is a . . .“collaborative effort driven by dozens of civic and environmental organizations from around the state. We are coming together to create a force for change – a change in the water policies of the state of Florida. By sharing ideas and resources across stakeholder lines and watersheds, we will be stronger – stronger together to command our right to clean water.”

Both organizations and individuals can sign the declaration.  Clean water is essential for our health, our environment, our economy, 
our children - for us all and our future.  For more information:
