GreenFest is our signature annual community event. Vendors, green groups, community advocates, and citizens join us from around the county to learn about sustainable living, meet other members of the community, and have a good time.
Green Speaker Series
Our Green Speaker series helps keep Silver Spring informed about current events in the sustainable economy. Past events have included presentations on the Sharing Economy and panel discussions on Demystifying Clean Green Energy.
The RainScapes Program promotes the use of innovative techniques in the landscape which soak up or store rainwater, reduce runoff, and keep pollutants from entering our streams. RainScapes techniques are typically small-scale measures that can be implemented on residential, institutional, and commercial properties to manage stormwater onsite. Many RainScapes are planted and look like attractive gardens.
Good Green Fun
Good Green Fun is a great monthly networking event hosted at different establishments in greater Silver Spring. It's a chance for environmentally-conscious businesses, citizens, and others to network and enjoy some good food and drinks.
Silver Spring Green worked with the Silver Spring Urban District to install 10 recycling bins downtown with text in French, Spanish, Amharic, and English. Phase II of the Recycling Bin program is slated to begin this fall, helping Silver Spring's citizens reduce their environmental impact.
