Our Story

Bluegrass Greensource is the source for all things green in central Kentucky, encouraging small steps toward a sustainable future for our communities. Formerly known as Bluegrass PRIDE, Bluegrass Greensource is a non-profit organization that provides education and resources on how we affect our environment. Since 2001, we have provided outreach to schools, community groups, businesses, local governments, and citizens throughout Central Kentucky.

At Bluegrass Greensource we believe that small, every day changes make a big impact on our shared environment. We also believe that everyone can make a difference, no matter your background. Our goal is to empower you by providing the knowledge and resources you need to make that difference. We work with people throughout 20 Central Kentucky counties to create this change.

Every day, you will find our staff out in the community, working to remove the barriers — be they knowledge or resources — to increasing sustainability. Our educators will be working in the classroom alongside teachers and students, bringing to life the science of water, waste and energy. Meanwhile, our outreach specialists will be working with businesses of all sizes to help them achieve their sustainability goals, conducting workshops on building rain barrels, helping to organize a community litter clean up, or hosting a hands-on home energy efficiency workshop. Wherever they are, Bluegrass Greensource staff are illustrating that by taking small steps, our personal actions can have a big impact on the environment.
