Local residents and community leaders are key participants in the development of the Empowerhouse. The Empowerhouse team is excited to be working with the Deanwood community, one of the greenest communities in Washington, DC.


Workshop Series: The Save Energy, Save Money Workshops- Greening Greater Deanwood workshop series has begun! The workshops provide a forum for interaction on green living topics, as well as expert advice on how to reduce your environmental footprint while saving money. Workshop leaders will include locally and nationally renowned professionals in the field of sustainable development and green living. Each workshop consists of leaders focusing on the immediate steps participants can take to move towards sustainability with regard to a specific topic.

The first two workshops of the series were a great success, thanks to our wonderful presenters, who generously shared their knowledge and expertise with us, and the participants who traveled and actively engaged in workshop activities. Check back here for up to date information for future dates and speakers, as the workshops will continue through the summer! Admission is free, and open to the public. Light refreshments are served.
