If that green wire is the one you installed, you did connect it to ground.
The difference between those two bars is the way they are connected to the breaker box and their function.
If you look at the ground bar (the one with all of the bare copper wires) it is connected directly to the out going ground wires, the breaker box, and the incoming ground wire so that everything is grounded. This bar does not normally carry current, but offers a path for electricity to earth ground, when on shore power, in case there is an accidental short circuit. Earth ground is an electrode (copper rod) driven into the earth and connected to the shore power breaker box where neutral and ground are connected together.
If you look at the neutral bar (the one with all of the white wires) it is connected to a piece of plastic so that is isolated from ground. This bar normally carries current.
