Green and Groovy




This weekend we participated in the 2nd annual Great Green America Fest in Manheim, PA.  The festival took place at the Mount Hope Estates and Winery which is home to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Festival grounds.  The event hosted a variety of green-minded organizations from the region and beyond.  The first day of the festival was dedicated solely to students from local school districts, with 4,500 students attending the festival from grades k-12th. Friday and Saturday of the event was open to the general public, attendees were from all over the great state of PA and surrounding east coast states.  Even though the weather didn’t fully cooperate there was still a solid turnout.  Their seemed to be something for everyone from activities and crafts, to displays, demonstrations, and even music.  We were extremely impressed with how well run the event was considering it was only the second year of the festival.  We enjoyed our time here and hope to come back for years to come.  Special thanks to our wonderful hosts for putting us up and helping us out at the Great Green America Fest!

Happy Trails,
