Viva Verde Guide & Expo 2009 to Showcase Community Resources and Solutions for Green Living in Southern NM

Silver City, NM 88061 – Interested in energy efficiency, strengthening our local economy and a healthy environment for all? The Viva Verde Guide and Expo 2009 was created to connect people with the ever-expanding world of green goods, information, resources and services to be more energy efficient, save on energy costs, and to live more lightly on the planet. Its goal is to build community, promote local green businesses and showcase sustainable solutions related to Food, Energy, Home, Transportation and Economy that will help individuals do their part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Viva Verde Guide, which will be distributed for free throughout southern New Mexico in early June and is available on-line at, serves as a year-round reference for connecting people with the organizations and businesses that share a commitment to the preservation of our planet. Becoming energy efficient and reducing environmental impacts will be quicker and easier through this one-stop clearinghouse of information.

The Viva Verde Expo will take place June 26 - 28, 2009, in Silver City, New Mexico, at the Global Resource Center, Western New Mexico University. The Expo is a weekend-long educational conference that will provide opportunities to participate in hands-on workshops; learn from experts in the field; connect with providers of green goods and services; participate in our Green Home and Garden Tour to learn about a variety of energy efficient retrofits and green building techniques, take part in discussions about regional development of Green Jobs, and attend other exciting Expo events such as recycled art show, environmental films, and entertainment.

To get involved in the Viva Verde project as an advertiser, sponsor, vendor, presenter or volunteer call 575.538.8078 or e-mail

The Viva Verde Guide and Expo is a collaborative project of the Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter, Gila Resources Information Project, Silver City Climate Protection Agreement Citizens’ Advisory Committee and Southwest Environmental Center.
