Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA — 10 July 2017 — The Spring Garden Eco-District, an initiative of the Knossus Project, announced today that it has launched 7 Net-Positive℠ Services.
Christopher Zelov, Founder of the Knossus Project and principal organizer of the Spring Garden Eco-District, said, “With the vast cinematic material the Knossus Project has produced over the last 25+ years on the frontiers of Ecological Design, I am delighted to organize our connections, partnerships and decades of research to offer these Net-Positive℠ services to the marketplace.”
Zelov added “Net-Positive℠Design refers to the art and practice of bringing forth regenerative eco-technology that gives back more than it takes.
The Spring Garden Eco-District now offers the followingNet-Positive℠ Services: Energy Audits, Solar Fountains, Long Now Sculptures, Custom Green Walls and Roofs, Green Design including Architecture, Custom Video Production, and Educational Programs including the “Inventing Eco-Futures” course.
At the next Spring Garden Eco-District meeting on 20 August 2017 from 1–3 PM at Saige Cafe, 1631 Wallace St, Philadelphia, PA 19130, Zelov will introduce these services so interested people can engage the Great Work of out time and begin to make the Green Transition.
Zelov said “At the meeting on the 20th, I will illuminate the Net-Positive℠ design philosophy we practice and how it informs each of our service offerings. I will also explore who might benefit from our services, the benefits of each, and we’ll discuss any questions participants may have about each of the seven Green Service offerings we are launching.”
CJ Fearnley, a co-organizer of the Spring Garden Eco-District and impresario of spontaneous cooperation, said “Since our first monthly meeting in January of this year, the Spring Garden Eco-District initiative has held a monthly meeting to explore ideas to improve ecological regenerativity in today’s world. I hope these seven service offerings will stimulate another engaged discussion as we marshall the talent to precipitate the Green Transition to bring a practice of ecological regenerativity to our cities.”

About: The Spring Garden Eco-District
The Spring Garden Eco-District is an incubator with a number of initiatives to nurture and catalyze the Ecological Transition. It endeavors to plant creative seeds to foster regenerative ecological design thinking in neighborhoods in and around Philadelphia. It is a grassroots, collaborative, and participatory thinking and doing initiative focused on making our neighborhoods flourish with Net-Positive℠ regenerative design. The initiative began in early 2016 with The Philadelphia EcoDistrict Oasis, a six month project with University of the Arts Associate Professor Tony Guido and a group of seven undergraduates. This led to an undertaking to seed Philadelphia’s first Eco-District in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia.
