The Benton County Board of Commissioners and Environmental Issues Advisory Committee nominated Seeds for the Sol, local non-profit, for the Third-Annual Benton County Environmental Award.
Many Benton County individuals and organizations in the community accomplish a great deal for the health of our environment through their hard work, dedication and vision. The Benton County Board of Commissioners and EIAC created this award to recognize the year’s most outstanding environmental contributions in the community.
Winners demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship that goes beyond compliance with regulatory requirements. Seeds for the Sol has helped 30 Corvallis homeowners put solar panels on their homes, with zero-interest loans provided by community members in a unique wealth-sharing program.
