Merrickville Goes Green is a group of concerned individuals and local business people who believe that big problems require local solutions.
We also believe that meaningful change is born or grass roots action and that we can't wait for government to come up with solutions. Now is the time to make energy, food, and transportation more environmentally-friendly and sustainable for all communities.
While we will happily work with local councils and other official bodies whenever possible, the charge will be led by committed individuals and community groups who believe action now is necessary to avert future catastrophe.
We are in an exciting time of transition. It is our responsibility to migrate from old-fashioned, resource-intensive and wasteful industry to more local, sustainable ways of meeting our daily needs.
If you have an idea or initiative that you feel aligns with our values or if you would like to get involved we would love to hear from you!
