GreeningUSA's Annual Meeting

GreeningUSA’s Annual Meetings focus on the excellent efforts of local, like-minded organizations in order to find ways to work together. At those meetings, we announce our annual “Sustaining our Communities Awards,” recognizing efforts of persons, organizations, or businesses within the community that have made a significant contribution to creating a sustainable future.
