DC Green Neighbors will be setting up a table at the Petworth Farmers Market this weekend (June 20th) as part of their "green-focused market." The volunteer group will be sharing information on energy efficiency, solar panels, rain barrels and more, and will also have things for kids to play with and learn from (like worms!).
Green Neighbors is an all-volunteer group of residents of the Petworth, Park View, Brightwood, and Columbia Heights neighborhoods. Their goal is to lower the emissions of carbon and other pollutants that contribute to global warming and to make renewable energy and other sustainable resources more accessible to everyone in the community. Green Neighbors see themselves as part of a larger District-wide, regional, national and international movement to preserve our climate and planet for future generations.
Trying to live the "think global, act local" concept, the group meets once a month, usually the third Monday, at the Petworth Library’s (depending on the availability of the meeting room).
Stop by their table to meet and learn more about how to live green this weekend at the market.
