MoCo to Host Family Friendly GreenFest on May 6
There are many ways to go green - from composting, solar roofs, or bikeshare, to name a few — it can seem overwhelming. Everyone can use a little help and guidance when making positive steps, especially if you want to do it right to save time, energy and money.
The 3rd annual Montgomery County GreenFest will take place on Saturday, May 6 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event is free and located at Bohrer Park, 512 South Frederick Avenue, Gaithersburg. The event is rain or shine.
The Montgomery County GreenFest is an annual festival that connects residents to those who can provide the guidance, tools and financial incentives to help you go green. Plus, it’s fun for the whole family with music, games, arts and crafts and food trucks.
“GreenFest makes it easy and fun to connect with other County residents and businesses who are doing positive things for the community. Going green is not ‘one-size-fits all’. It is about empowerment, support from neighbors and inclusiveness, so we all work together to continue moving the needle forward,” said Lisa Feldt, Director of the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection.
This year, GreenFest is at Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg and activities include:
• Demonstrations on sustainable food and cooking by local farmers and chefs including, Chef Tony, Green Plate Catering, and Mark Mills of Chocolates a
