DC Greenworks

Established in 2000, DC Greenworks is a nonprofit that empowers residents and neighborhood groups to restore and preserve their communities by serving as a green roof advocate and educator, and as a one-stop shop for Low Impact Development (LID) consultation, design, and installation.  As of 2015, it is credited with installing over 70 green roofs and 3,200 rain barrels. Since 2011, DC Greenworks has partnered with other nonprofit and public entities around green job training programs.  Most recently, in March 2014, DC Greenworks launched the District’s first-ever green roof maintenance training program, which trains unemployed and underemployed young adults living in Wards 6, 7, and 8 in all aspects of green roof maintenance techniques.
