Green Festival™, the nation’s largest sustainability event, returns to the Washington Convention Center October 23-24. As always, the Green Festival theme is a great place to shop green, enjoy informative, insightful speakers, learn about cutting edge eco-innovations, enjoy great live music, organic wine and beer and amazing local vegetarian cuisine. There will be fun educational family activities as well as hands-on workshops.
There is also a new Green Business Conference Pavilion, which will feature speakers on various topics of interest to business owners. I will be speaking on Sunday, October 24 at 1:00. Please stop by if you are at the Festival!
Here are some of the featured activities:
Annie’s Green Kid’s Zone will offer fun and creative hands-on activities organized by the National Children’s Museum. Kids can create wearable water bottle jewelry and creations, participate in a recycling obstacle challenge, bowl a recycled strike, make a jump rope out of plastic bags, build a city, enjoy a fair trade chocolate party, learn about the busy futures of recycled objects and learn how the National Children’s Museum will be a green organization!
Mother Earth News is hosting a Seed Swap sponsored by Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. If you have seeds to trade please organize and label them according to the guidelines posted on our website. Swappers will receive a goodie bag from Mother Earth News and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. There will also be seeds for sale for those who don’t have any to swap.
