The annual Green Community Tour returns this Sunday

Join us Sunday, June 5 from 1-4 p.m. for the 19th annual Green Community Tour (formerly the Green Home and Garden Tour)! Get great ideas and inspiration for how YOU can help Arlington build a greener community.

This event is sponsored by Arlington County’s Office of Sustainability and Environmental Management, Arlington Public Libraries, EcoAction Arlington and Virginia Cooperative Extension.

Learn how fun and easy it is to make choices that better your home, community and the environment! The Green Community Tour will showcase green homes, green renovations, and watershed-friendly gardens in Arlington County. Come meet and speak to site hosts who have made eco-friendly choices that have both improved the quality of their living space and reinforced their commitment to a healthier environment.

Learn about their stories and efforts through 14 sites available to view through the self-guided tour between 1-4 p.m. Participants can visit as many as they like and, in any order!

The simultaneous Green Community Celebration at Shirlington Library Plaza will feature electric vehicles, exhibits and family-friendly fun! Learn from electric vehicle owners and experts about the installation of home chargers, using public chargers, different types of chargers and how to care for an EV.

*Note — vehicles will be available for viewing, but not test driving!

Meet Arlington County representatives to answer any questions you may have regarding energy efficient technologies, solar energy, water-saving technologies, rain gardens, native plants, wildlife habitat and more!

Register here for free via EcoAction Arlington to attend!

Location: Shirlington Library Plaza at 4200 Campbell Avenue, and homes, gardens, and community spaces at locations throughout Arlington.
