Green Living DC is a volunteer-led organization in the ANC3F neighborhood, committed to “connecting people and resources for a more sustainable community.” For four years now, Green Living DC members have been organizing the annual Green Living DC Expo at UDC, connecting residents with green technologies, products and organizations during a fun family-friendly community event. Green Living DC is also organizing the annual Burritos For Fun cleanup of the Soap Stone Creek, and we are always looking for opportunities to build new events and partnership to advance green living in NW DC.
Our group grew out of the Neighborhood Sustainability Indicators Project (NSIP), an innovative, community-based, grassroots effort to engage neighborhood residents, businesses and institutions to define their vision, goals and targets for sustainability at the local level and take specific actions towards meeting their identified goals. This pilot project was specifically focused on the ANC3F area covering the North Cleveland Park, Forest Hills and Tenleytown areas of Ward 3, Washington, DC.
