As your representative in County Government, my hope is that this site provides you with current and helpful information about issues affecting our County and communities, helps you navigate and access county services and resources, and encourages you to be engaged and involved in county government.
As a lifelong resident of Marin, I appreciate and am inspired by the natural beauty and values and priorities of visionary people and policymakers who shaped this county, making it a unique and wonderful place. Building on the legacy of my predecessors means making our environment, open space and community resources a priority. It also means understanding and appreciating the passions people have for specific interests – whether that is their children’s schools, neighborhoods, civic groups, non-profit organizations or issues.
Sustainable Fairfax is a nonprofit educational organization. We support the philosophy that we must attend to the needs of the present without sacrificing the ability of future generations and the natural world to provide for their own needs.
Our vision is to provide Community Education events that support the local economy, teach sustainable environmental practices, and build community. We strive to inspire citizens to take action on issues such as Climate Change, Toxics, Zero Waste, Food, Water, and other sustainability topics. We also work actively with our town and county governments, businesses, other non-profits, and community groups to create a connected community, strenghten our local economy, and support diverse ecology.

The Away Station
Inventory is constantly changing and generally consists of not only used but also new building construction materials and creative “collectible stuff”. The prices will meet anyone’s budget!
“90-percent of building materials can be recycled or reused, but are not. Buying new is inefficient,” said Bachelder [our founder], “because we are using up resources faster then the planet can replenish them. If you installed a used door instead of buying a new one, you would be saving the environment from cutting down a tree, transporting it, manufacturing it, shipping it and selling it and also saving space in the landfill.”

The Garage in Fairfax, recently named one of the top 100 shops in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Chronicle, is a design collective housed in, you guessed it, a long-vacant car repair shop. While there are antiques and vintage artifacts, what sets us apart is that we’re all makers. We up-cycle, we devise; on offer are unique handmade items – textiles, leather-work, jewelry, paper goods, wearable art, fine art, photography, repurposed vintage home goods, you name it. At its heart, it’s a place to find beauty in common things, magic in the mundane. A sprinkling of glitter under an old tin roof.

A great first impression is the most important part of real estate, and staging is the perfect way to showcase your home to potential buyers. Buyers make an immediate decision emotionally about whether or not they feel that they can move into your house. A cluttered house can often signal disorder, just like an empty house can make it seem cold and uninviting. Your belongings and personal style are perfect for you, but may not appeal to potential buyers.
Upstage-Marin can help you from beginning to end in your real estate process with our skillful team to make your home as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Statistics have proven that staged homes not only sell faster, but for much higher amounts than non-staged homes.
