Girls Gone Green
THE ORGANIC WOMEN OF THE GREEN SCHEME
Women are an integral component in the environmental sustainability and health movement that is gaining momentum across the globe. This spring, The Green Scheme is starting a women’s group “Girls Gone Green” that will be geared towards bringing women together from across the District to discuss the current health climate that children, families and women face in today’s society. We will be providing a communal space in which women can learn from one another’s experiences and use their stories and backgrounds to enhance the communal space that we will be providing. Through education, environmental/health stewardship training and leadership opportunities, our hope is to make sure every women in the DMV has the access and space to be environmental leaders in their own communities. Women’s empowerment is important to The Green Scheme because we believe that when women are doing well and are granted equal access and opportunity in their communities, communities thrive and change for the better. Green Scheme’s Director of Education Quiana Newby will be working closely with our President and Deputy Director Ronnie Webb and Jerome Nesbitt to engage with women across the District in order to empower communities in a diverse social setting. We are writing a call of action to get as many women involved in our urban agriculture movement! If you are interested in learning how to garden, cooking/baking healthy food options, learning about urban agriculture, having conversations about women’s empowerment and seeking a community of women with similar goals and ideas, please contact . We will continue to update our site with information regarding the “Girls Gone Green” Women’s Group but please feel free to reach out to our group for dates, times, etc. For more information about The Green Scheme and our future programs follow us on Facebook and Instagram @TheGreenScheme.
