Lori Fuqua Gregory is a sustainability writer, editor and educator. Her primary areas of expertise are green building, green living and sustainable communities. She has been involved in environmental endeavors for more than 20 years.
The goals of her work are to communicate and facilitate positive actions for affordable sustainability. She is passionate about building awareness and solutions to environmental problems, and providing the practical guidance, information, and tools that people need to put green principles into practice.
Lori has a bachelor’s degree in English Technical Writing from the University of Colorado, Denver and life credit of over 20 years working in the building industry advocating for co-housing and sustainability in an effort to build affordable community housing. Lori has consulted on many residential, commercial, public and nonprofit building projects.
On a more personal note, she’s always had an affinity for homegrown ideas. Lori grew up in rural California, the birthplace of domestic co-housing communities and backyard gardening techniques of the late 1970s. She has developed a strong interest in building sustainable, affordable communities over the years. She also advocates for homeless and at-risk youth, tirelessly working towards building networks of support to keep them in school and off the streets. She lives in the small town of Golden in the NW Denver foothills, with her children, a feisty cat and their dog, Amarillo.
