Bethesda Green is spreading the good word about local green initiatives, sharing information, and helping neighbors connect through numerous community events, two of which took place last weekend.

On Saturday, over 30 community leaders attended the “Greening Your Community” forum organized by BG Board Member Ilaya Hopkins, with featured presentations about programs and services offered through the B-CC Regional Services Center and Montgomery County’s Division of Solid Waste Services.

On Sunday, we visited the Brookmont neighborhood’s green cafe and joined about 20 people in discussions on storm water management, home energy audits, and earth friendly household cleaning products.  Thanks to Brookmont resident and community leader Sandy Robinson for the invitation and the chance to share a platform with folks from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Ecobeco.

Coming up later this month and into April, the Friends of the Library, in partnership with Bethesda Green and other nonprofits are presenting Bethesda Goes Green! — a series of program on the environment.  Plan now to attend one or more of the five Saturday afternoon programs at the Bethesda Library on Arlington Road.
