A Winning Lineup at GreenFest

This year's GreenFest features exhibitors with products and services to help you save money on energy, create a safer and healthier home (inside and out) along with greening your kitchen table.

Learn, buy, recycle - this is the winning combination you’ll find this Saturday, April 28 at GreenFest. 

And, unlike a ticket at Fenway, admission to GreenFest is FREE.

Learn. GreenFest features dozens of exhibitors with products and services to help you save money on energy, create a safer and healthier home (inside and out) along with greening your kitchen table. Here is just a sample of the GreenFest lineup.

Workshops:

  • Chip Osborne from Osborne Organics – “Simple Steps to Organic Lawn Care”- starting at 10:15
  • Chuck Holden from Holden Oil – “What’s Up with Gas Prices?” – starting at 11:15
  • Additional workshops focus on healthy food habits


Exhibitorsa very partial list:

  • OSRAM/Sylvania (lighting), AtmosAir (air quality products), Independent Power Systems (solar technology), Heaven’s Harvest Farms (organic produce), 360Chestnut (energy efficiency); – and many, many more.  GreenFest 2012


Buy.
Our new Peabody Farmers Market will be set up at GreenFest and will feature wonderful products to buy including fresh organic produce from Heaven’s Harvest Farm.

Recycle. GreenFest features both electronics recycling AND free bulk paper shredding. PLEASE BE ADVISED: come early for the paper shredding. JRM Hauling is providing secure paper shredding all day and a special truck built for this purpose will be on site from 8:30-10:30 a.m. and again from 1-2 p.m. JRM is providing secure and locked recycling bins between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

GreenFest offers you the opportunity to recycle both large and small electronics items for a very nominal charge.

During the week we’ll continue to feature more of the winning GreenFest lineup, so stay tuned to this blog site. And the GreenFest lineup, built for both adults and kids, is the perfect family roster.

Just came away from GreenPeabody's terribly successful 2nd annual GreenFest. There were more exhibitors than last year, a more professional style exhibited, more fun kids' activities and a larger crowd. We're definitely on a roll here. Let's keep up the good work!
