The 2019 Green Academy


The Citizens for Clean and Green presents the 9th Annual Green Academy. Each week the group meets for a casual light meal, followed by two presentations on a variety of environmental topics, delivered by local experts. The Academy begins with a look at the global picture and then brings it down to the local level. It covers practical tips for you to use in your home, information on community programs, and resources for green living in Roanoke!
