Mariana shares about what's new in Emu's work, including reflections on Emu's recent tradesperson training held in Santa Barbara. She also discusses the recent Marshall Fire outside of Denver, the ongoing rebuilding effort there, and the role that Colorado's Passive House community is playing there to help "build forward".
