1983: Growing Up

The Georgia Solar Coalition acquires a condemned building at 158 Moreland Avenue and constructs an Urban Demonstration Center, which would be named Southface: Alternative Energy Center.

  • "It was a wonderful experience, we learned so much and grew greatly getting to spread our knowledge in energy efficient design and construction. People came excited to learn about homebuilding and it was so satisfying to work with them and watch the excitement about their experience!"
    Mary Witt, Founder of Southface Homebuilding School
