The free training sessions provide consolidated resource education, a business matched mentor to assist in the certification process, access to online resources, and the opportunity to connect with other businesses pursuing the same goal.

The next free half-day Green City Business training session will be held on Tuesday, February 9, 2010. More information about the Green City Business program can be found online. Registration is required and can be completed online or by contacting Julia Gorrell at 427-6059. The registration deadline is Friday February 5, 2009.
