Rappahannock Community College (RCC) received a Greenforce Initiative innovation grant award to host a Regional Green Vendor Fair in the spring of 2012. The Green Vendor Fair took place on April 19, 2012, in partnership with the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce. More than 15 green vendors attended highlighting their environmentally friendly products and services. Employers (vendors) present included Dominion Power, Philips Energy, Green Planters, Gloucester Toyota, Lamb Exterminating, Rapphannock Community College, and more.
Awareness of green products, initiatives and technologies is a critical need for local businesses, homeowners and citizens near RCC. The fair provided information about green career pathways in the region and provided access to green technology initiatives to lower-skilled adults in a non-threatening, open environment.
