Sustainable Lawrence

11th Annual Mercer County Green Fest


 

The local area’s green fair, the Mercer Green Fest (formerly known as the Living Local Expo) will be held on Sunday March 18, 2017 from 11 am – 4 pm at Rider University Student Recreation Center, which is located on the main campus, 2083 Lawrenceville Rd, Lawrenceville. The fair is free and open to the public, rain or shine.

 

After 10 years as the Living Local Expo, the annual event’s name has changed to Mercer Green Fest to indicate the day is fun for the whole family and has expanded to partner with nine communities throughout Mercer County.

The Mercer Green Fest is presented by the Mercer County Sustainability Coalition, which is comprised of the Ewing Green Team, Hopewell Green Team, Lawrence Environmental Resources & Sustainability Green Advisory Committee (ERSGAC), Trenton Green Team, Sustainable Lawrence, Sustainable Princeton, West Windsor Environmental Commission, Mercer County Office of Sustainability, and the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association.

 

The popular event will feature sustainable local businesses, community groups, farmers market, electric car display, demonstrations, and speakers throughout the day.

 

In addition to the many eco-friendly vendors at our green fest, visitors can learn about a variety of sustainability issues and exciting community projects such as bike paths, food waste recycling, energy efficiency, and wellness.

There is plenty for the kids to do too.  This year’s event will feature the Grammy Award nominated Miss Amy and we will also be bringing back the Eyes of the Wild traveling zoo as well as Art All Day.

 

A farmers market will feature local farms and local artisan food producers. A lunch celebrating locally sourced and seasonal ingredients will be available for purchase.

 

Programs: Miss Amy’s Band, Eyes of the Wild, Green Planet Band, Solar Man, The Grand Falloons, and Kinetic Solar Sculpture

Speakers Topics: Climate change, Energy, Solar Panels, and Fracking
