GREENFEST 2017 WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
Thanks for joining us on Saturday, September 9th for the fourth annual Portland Greenfest! We had more than 50 exhibitors highlighting renewable energy, local foods, electric cars, clean water, wildlife, green products for your home or business, ways to get involved in greening your community & lots more! We filled our bellies with some great food from Fishin’ Ships, had kids’ activities all day, and had a free gleaned produce giveaway. Keep reading to hear about all the fun ways we celebrated sustainability in 2017.
Check out our list of exhibitors here.
Don’t forget – Portland Greenfest is an annual event!
Portland Greenfest 2017 had fun, interactive activities for all ages!
We had hands-on crafts, fun and games, kids’ music on stage, and a Pollinator Parade at noon! See our full list of kids’ activities for Greenfest 2017 here.
Our gleaned food exchange was a hit, and we gave away crates upon crates of delicious, local Maine produce.
Did you have a chance to hop on our smoothie bike?? We pedaled our way to deliciousness (using only reclaimed coal foods, of course).
We counted ourselves extremely lucky to have the help of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, who set up all day at Greenfest and shared their expertise on backyard composting and food preservation. You can read more about our 2017 Focus on the Food System here.
