Bijal’s May Update


May was insanely busy but it was my best month yet with Neighbor to Neighbor! I attended different types of events, helped plan a Passivhaus Talk in Westport (, and met several new people in our towns.

Last week, Cassie of Clean Water Action came to train Neighbor to Neighbor staff in canvassing. She gave us great tips on going door to door in our communities. After our training, we canvassed with Cassie and three volunteers in Westport (right by the beach)!

Last but not least, my family received a Home Energy Solutions visit. Our leaky fireplace was sealed up and we learned a neat little trick: shine a flashlight into a closed ceiling fixture and you can tell if there is a CFL or incandescent bulb inside. Nice to know!
