Green Needham Virtual Open House, June 2022

Green Needham, or the Green Needham Collaborative, has been a volunteer organization dedicated to raising awareness and promoting change to create a more environmentally sustainable future through local action. Active since 2006, the organization has made strong connections throughout the community and advocated on many aspects of healthier, more earth-friendly topics–some of which may surprise you. Recently they held an open house online to introduce themselves to people who may not have been aware of them previously, and to provide an entry point for new volunteers who are interested in joining their efforts.
