Green Spot is a new feature at the SE Sunday Parkways on August 25, presented by the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. If you plan to be out on your bike that day, look for the six Green Spots along the Sunday Parkways route will showcase sustainable features of a healthy, connected neighborhood.
"As west coast cities like Portland continue to grow and develop, “green spots” like these are essential investments to create more vibrant and livable neighborhoods for generations to come," said Alisa Kane, BPS green building program manager.
SE Sunday Parkways riders who stop at a Green Spot will learn about solar, composting and recycling, accessory dwelling units, home energy efficiency, the local sharing economy, and food and garden options. Kids and adults can collect stickers and win prizes.
At the sustainable food stop, the Green Spot team will distribute free packets of vegetable seeds, courtesy of a generous donation from Seeds of Change.
