What we're about
We've renamed Forest Hills Solar Energy Meetup to Forest Hills Green Team Meetup.
Meetings are tentatively set for the second Monday of the month at 7 PM at the Central Queens Y on 108th Street.
We started meeting there in December 2017, and are now working on several projects:
If you are concerned about climate change and environmental issues, as well as local beautification and energy conservation, come and join your neighbors to work together in Queens!
After a January 2018 presentation from New York Renews, a group that has formed to lobby for state climate legislation, we have members contacting local elected officials in support of the Climate and Community Protection Act. http://www.nyrenews.org/
The community garden committee will be working with Stephen Melnick, steward of McDonald Park, to promote volunteer work days at the park, and with Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS) to bring in volunteers to maintain and expand their existing community garden.
Other members have met to discuss initiatives to make FH more accessible to biking and walking.
- NYS action on climate change
