Learn how to jump start a green team at your apartment, HOA, business or congregation!
If you feel that your community could do a better job at recycling, saving energy and water conservation, don’t wait for someone else to make the needed changes. Take charge and start a green team yourself!
Be the Spark in your community!
Being a Spark in your community can be educational, rewarding, and most of all fun! Participants will learn from a local community manager how she took the initiative to make a difference in her community by seeking out partners, volunteers and grant funds to bring her neighbors together to plant 200+ trees and 2,200+ native plants, and to install 11 cisterns (so far) to keep stormwater on the property, thereby significantly reducing stormwater runoff.
Participants also will learn the importance of a community Green Team and how to jump start that process. Mike Hunninghake from Sustainable Maryland will be on hand to provide insight into how individuals can become a “Spark for Sustainability” in their neighborhood. He also will describe the organization’s certification process and how adopting sustainable actions can make a significant difference in your community.
This session is ideal for residents of apartment buildings, condos, HOAs, in addition to businesses and congregations.
