Green Blocks Sustainability Fair
We’re partnering with the Philadelphia Water Department to hold a “Green Blocks Sustainability Fair” on Saturday, June 1st from 10 AM-2 PM at Kemble Park located at Ogontz and West Chew Avenue. Let us know if you can make it!
The event brings together public and private sector exhibitors to provide “tools” through information, demonstrations, hands-on workshops and job opportunities for activities and projects to implement sustainability for healthier homes and clean and greener communities. Will you be there for this first ever-one of a kind event?
Some of the day’s festivities include:
- Stage presentations moderated by Christine Knapp, Director of Philadelphia’s Office of Sustainability
- Community leaders telling the story of Kemble Park, the site of the event, which is one of Philadelphia Water Departmentmost outstanding green water infrastructure projectsin its “Green City Clean Water” Campaign: a 25 year project to allow 85 percent of the City’s rain to into the ground where it falls.
- A first come-first serve giveaway of reusable check out bags and recycling bins which follows a “Bring Your Own Bag” Rally at 1 PM to kickoff a campaign to eliminate single use plastic check out bags in Philadelphia.
Come Saturday, June 1st to Kimble Park from 10 AM-2 PM and bring your family and neighbors to learn about what you can do to bring sustainability to your neighborhood! We hope to see you there!
