Biography

Heart of Green embodies a passion for green, clean, and everything in between. Welcome! I began this web site in 2004 to share green stories and uplifting eco-conscious events that promote environmental awareness and have the potential to make a difference. There is a special place in my heart for redwood trees and endangered species of all kinds including tigers, lions, whales, elephants and more. Thank you for reading and for being a steward of our planet!

Sincerely,
Nadine Weil
Founder, Heart of Green
