PUBLIC EDUCATION
ON SUSTAINABLITY
​IN CONSTRUCTION


GreenCasaMaryland.org is a public advocacy organization dedicated to constructing a sustainable model home, and using it to educate the public on sustainable home construction.

On our site you will find many tips, videos, information and links to resources to "go sustainable" in your home construction project!

GCM CONDUCTS PUBLIC TOURS ON SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION 

GreenCasaMaryland.org has conducted 52 tours of our sustainable green home over the past several months educating people about the benefits of sustainable design and building. These tours have included students from elementary, middle and high schools, students and professors from American University and GW University, home builders, reps from companies focused on sustainable construction, journalists, community leaders and of course many inquisitive citizens who just want to learn and apply the lessons and technologies we have employed at Green Casa.  

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett has made sure that green initiatives are available for the entire county by working with energy suppliers, companies and the community. More info: http://montgomerycountymd.mygreenmontgomery.org/

 

“As a State, we must move forward on a smart, sustainable path,” said Governor O’Malley. “Building upon our recent successes, we need to create a foundation for both our future and our children’s future.  We have to make tough decisions, governing through green initiatives and living our own lives as examples.”

“It is an honor to be elected chair of the Chesapeake Executive Council again, during what will be my last year as Governor of the great State of Maryland. We’ve made significant progress in restoring the Chesapeake Bay since I first had this privilege back in 2007. In addition, we’ve enjoyed strong federal leadership from President Obama and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency."

GCM knows that this country was built on the backbone of immigrant labor, and to recognize that, we are dedicated to using skilled immigrant labor as much as possible. We have partnered with the local immigrant aid organization, CasadeMaryland.org, in finding work for these hard-working, skilled laborers.
