Frederick County's all-new Frederick County Green logo represents an extension of Frederick County Recycling. Its mission is to move beyond our county's efforts to reduce waste and send materials off for recycling and reuse, keeping the message of "green living" a priority in our community.
Birds, Bees, and Butterflies
Pollinators are responsible for the success of 150 varieties of crops in the U.S. and nearly 75 percent of all flowering plants. Find out more about their importance, how to protect the imperiled monarch and all pollinators and ways to invite them into your garden such as planting natives and providing habitat.
Businesses in our community are a huge part of our green efforts. As part of a two-year project administered by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, a publication was produced celebrating those accomplishments. Greening the Valley is a compilation of recycling and conservation success stories from across the Northern Shenandoah Planning District.
Summer is here! That means fresh, local fruits and produce in abundance. Support our local farmers, markets and processors. Buy local. Discover what's in season and where to find it at Buy Local Shenandoah Valley.
