Shab Dudley

Shab Dudley is an ideal role model. A homeowner who immediately jumped into action and set up a home compost bin the very day she saw a Gallant Gold Media post on social media about the vital importance of home composting to drawdown carbon.

Sandra Ford

Sandra Ford is an amazing role model. Setting an example for her community through her consistent and immediate action in restoring her local habitat, which boosts carbon storage above ground and below, improves soil health, and supports wildlife. Her efforts create a positive ripple effect that saves lives.

Wegmans in Fairfax, VA is way out in front of other property owners in following the high standards of planting diverse shrubs beneath trees in their parking lot, and shrubs along wall lines.

WhiteHall Farms, LLC

Awesome organic farm in Clifton, VA that follows conservation agricultural principles that dramatically boosts carbon storage in the soil. Thank you!

University of Richmond

University of Richmond students were the drivers of starting their 2022 composting plans early during the pandemic. UR’s innovative Rethink Waste Team launched a pilot composting program that ran from November 2020 – February 2021, to reduce food waste through composting, which resulted in an outcome that will help boost soil health and increase soil carbon sequestration in the sate of Virginia.


But a role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; his or her very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, yes, someone like me can do this.

~Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of Supreme Court
