What you can do

There are several ways to have a sustainable lifestyle, but you can even help the City become sustainable.


One of the many options to volunteer is to learn a new skill through the Parks Department. The Parks and Urban Forestry Department accepts volunteers to help clean up trash, maintain landscaping, and planting trees. The Director of Parks and Urban Forestry tries to match people with skill set tasks and interest in the Parks. Visit the Parks Department website for more information as well as how to contact Dave Walker. 


There are multiple opportunities to learn how to become more sustainable. The Verona Public Library website hosts lots of events. Some of the events even relate to sustainability such as making and using compost in your backyard, storm water management, organic techniques for growing vegetables, and using herbs creatively. They even have events for children such as Eco Makers that recycle materials into a project.
