June 13, 2018, 6:00 PM - June 14, 2018, 8:00 PM @ Lacawac Sanctuary
Participants will learn how solar works and how much it costs, find out if their roof is well positioned to generate solar electricity, witness an on-site demonstration and get hands-on practice. Solar orders may also be placed, for those who are interested.
As a bonus, this year's workshop will include an actual solar installation at Lacawac Sanctuary. Attendees may participate June 23 (rain date June 24) for further training.
Presenters include North American Board of Energy Practitioners Certified Installer Blair Buselli of Buselli Solutions of Beach Lake and Jack Barnett, president of the Clean Energ Co-op, past chapter chair of the American Solar Society and consultant.

June 14, 2018, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ University of Scranton Small Business Development Center
Every year the United States Department of Agriculture awards grants (up to $100,000 per successful applicant) to small business owners, who link with researchers to test solutions to rural community problems through their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. This free workshop will introduce participants to the SBIR, determine the “fit” between the problem you have identified and a grant project, and (unique to this grant awareness program) launch follow-on coaching to support you as you build your grant proposal. In addition to production agriculture-related innovations, successful projects are those resulting in new scientific information to improve overall quality of life in rural communities.
