Connecting for a sustainable community

Getting the notice for the skills fair reminded me that I should promote my class on solar home design at the UW. This will be my 22nd year teaching the class through the ASUW Experimental College. I hope this is the appropriate way to do this. If I should do it differently, please advise. Thanks
