Green Solutions Group

The Green Solutions Group’s mission is to seek out and propose renewable energy sources and solutions that will both lower the municipal government’s energy demands and costs across its varied activities and responsibilities and serve as a model of energy efficiency that both builders and home owners can adopt to enjoy long term cost savings and cleaner air.


The Hillsdale Green Solutions Committee is planning an exciting calendar for spring and summer.  We will once again sponsor the “Chef’s Corner” at the Hillsdale Farmers Market.  However, we will have a guest chef at every market day this year instead of once a month.  If you are a caterer or professional restaurant chef and would like to participate, please call Janis Smythe at 325-4223.

We will be having our community gardening workshops at the Roe Jan Park. If you would like to participate, let us know.  Tom Carty and Willa Horton will be supervising this program. We will also be organizing a series of speakers who will discuss our environment, sustainable farming, green construction etc.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this committee, please call Janis Smythe or email her at email hidden; JavaScript is required.  We have lots of ideas and would appreciate the help!
