SEEED Meets with Mayor Brown

seeedKNOXVILLE -- Mayor Brown met with members of Socially Equal Energy Efficient Development (SEEED) on Thursday, March 4, 2011.

SEEED provides disenfranchised youths a pathway out of poverty through the pursuit of sustainable prosperity. This green community development non-profit focuses on creating and sustaining jobs for Knoxville's urban young people, and ensuring clean energy and conservation technologies are available for low income residents.

SEEED is preparing the heart of Knoxville to become the center of the emerging green economy by increasing access to sustainable, clean energy technologies for low to moderate income residents. The resulting green job opportunities associated with these programs create pathways out of poverty for our youth.

On April 25th SEEED is holding a Community Action and Celebration Day to encourage others to get out on the block and rid the streets from trash and unwanted litter.

The SEEED group will be working on and around a different segment of E. Magnolia Ave. for the year. The event will feature a party which will include performances from local musicians, dancers, and Spoken word poets. The celebration will be held at or near Tribe One, 2112 East Magnolia Ave.

SEEED is currently looking for six Team Leaders to step up and recruit 10 to 15 group members. If you are interested in leading or working on one of the teams, or if you would like to sponsor or partner with this event, contact Josh Outsey at For more information on SEEED, visit
