Meet the Board
We currently have 5 board of directors who meet on a monthly basis.
Hi, I’m Judyth Greenburgh, President of Goodent, conceptual artist, creative consultant and art educator. I like to combine my conceptual skills from years as a creative director with my passion for reclaiming what has been abandoned. Since moving to Inyo County over 12 years ago – I’ve been an art director for the Lone Pine Museum of Western Film, a muralist & creative consultant and is currently Vice President for the Inyo County for the Arts. A former tutor at Lone Pine’s TANF afterschool program I currently teach for ICA afterschool program and volunteer as an art docent. An award winning photographer & kaleidoscope artist I’ve exhibited and taught numerous workshops focusing on reclaimed materials.
Hi, I’m Erin Renee Vice President of Goodent. My background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a California Teaching Credential for Elementary School, and years of experience coordinating and teaching art in various situations and communities across the USA. I 'm the School Arts Coordinator at Inyo Council for the Arts, where I coordinate arts education programming in Inyo County schools and communities. I’m a passionate educator, visual artist, & environmentalist who uses STEAM activities to educate and inspire action in a fun & creative way. Creative reuse is my jam & I love sharing it!
My name is Tiffany Lau, Goodent Treasurer. I live in Bishop in the Eastern Sierra in Payahuunadü (the place of flowing water), land of the Nüümü and Shoshone.
Bishop is a small town in one of the most beautiful places in the world, but there are downsides to living here. Recycling, especially for plastics, is limited. There’s an extreme shortage of affordable housing. We pay resort pricing at large-chain stores due to our proximity to the Mammoth Mountain ski resort. It’s expensive to live here.
I want to help people save money where they can, so they can spend it on experiences and local businesses they love.
What drew me to Goodent was the opportunity to help others improve their lives by reducing overconsumption of consumer goods, reusing material that would otherwise end up in landfills, and recycling when possible.
- Do you like ReUseArts and finding creative ways to reduce landfill?
- Do you like performing arts and want to get involved in local theater?
- Do you like dancing like a zombie or being involved in art installations?
All while making a positive impact in the community?
If so, you could be a perfect addition to the Goodent Board of Directors!
Our initiatives for 2022
A lot has happened since we had our first brainstorming meeting at Gertrude Stein’s salon in February 2019.
We successfully filed and became an official non profit 501(c) (3) & registered California non profit since June 2019.
For 2022 we have identified the following initiatives:-
1) Continued Programming for the Forum Theater in Lone Pine.
We received a 2022 community grant to help launch a series of performances.
We welcome Martha Jo Walton as out theater manager who will be programming events
2) Continue to conduct Re-use Workshops
often partnering with Inyo County’s showcasing of Gladys the giant re-cyclescope at events & schools.
3) Create a ReUse Give and Take maker / work-shop space currently upstairs at the loft in Lone Pine. We are looking for a more permanent venue for this effort.
4) Create a re-use art mosaic / mural out of items cleaned up from our precious landscape to educate people how to clean up and the dangers to the environment and wildlife if it is not. We have submitted a grant proposal for this.
5) Our community dances continue with our annual Thrill the World Zombie dance held every October.
6) Help clean up our local areas: Conducting cleanups in our local areas.
7) We are publishing a book to showcase local artist John Hamilton's sketches & raise money for an art station at the Skilled Nursing Facility in Lone Pine
8) Collaborate more with other groups, agencies and non profits for further our mission. We aim to share resources to achieve our common goals.
