Sustainable Maryland. Sustainable Cheverly.

Cheverly Community Market is proud to support local actions toward being recognized as a sustainable community through Sustainable Maryland. And we're honored to be included as just one of seven examples of  effective farmer's market startups in Maryland in the Sustainable Maryland guidelines.

Sustainable Maryland Certified is a new initiative of the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland. It is designed to support Maryland's 157 municipalities as they look for cost-effective and strategic ways to protect their natural assets and revitalize their communities. Using best practices in resource areas like water, energy, planning, health, food, and economy, a municipality can earn points toward sustainability certification.

See Cheverly progress in this very detailed process here. And view Cheverly's Green Plan here. Many thanks to the volunteers who are working diligently to see this initiative through -- Cheverly volunteers continue to accomplish amazing things!
