Progress Status

We are open, please come visit us in Waterbury, Vermont

Greenspark project, as you see it now, is a culmination of five years of research and planning. Over that period we have looked at hundreds of properties, built a number of complicated spreadsheets, received great advice from countless people, and documented the best exhibit ideas. Now, finally, we are ready to make it happen. An idea to create a place for people to experience all aspects of sustainable living is rapidly becoming a reality. During the summer of 2015, we found a property that satisfied all our requirements and in March 2016 we bought it. We engaged a local engineering company to help us with a site plan and with the permits. With their help, we received the necessary permits.
A little over a year later, in October 2017, we opened our doors. Please come visit!

  • We purchased land and received all permits. We built a 20 lot parking space. We also built an off-grid solar powered Welcome Center and exhibit pavilions.

  • All exhibits have been designed and many have been purchased and ready to be assembled. Coming in 2018.

  • We built a Cordwood and a Straw Bale exhibits. We broke ground on construction of EarthBag and EarthShip exhibits. Sign up to our newsletter to get involved.

  • Come see a solar-human hybrid ELF, a first modern mass produced electric car, called ComutaCar, a sailing trike called Whike, a demo biodiesel setup and a wood gasifier.
