Board of Trustees

We are fortunate to have a dedicated Board of Trustees with a diverse skill set and a commitment to sustainable living.


Eve Coulson, President

In Princeton, Eve serves on the Princeton Zoning board and is active at the Princeton Jewish Center. She sees neighborhood building as an underestimated yet very powerful way to increase sustainable practices in daily life. She always takes the stairs—and she has discovered that sometimes the smallest things convey a big message. She carries a spork with her everywhere, which has not only saved the lives of countless plastic spoons and forks but sparked many conversations (“what IS that thing?”), about how one’s habits can have cumulative positive impacts.
