Hood College’s Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies (CCWS) and the Friends of Baker Park are once again hosting the Green Neighbor Festival, this year on May 12, 2018. This year the goal of the event is to highlight environmentally friendly living practices by providing education and ideas to the community to live more sustainably, conserve resources and shop at local green businesses in Frederick County. Last year’s event attracted nearly 1000 attendees and we anticipate more this year.

Event organizers are expanding the day’s activities and entertainment to include live acoustic music, a sustainability bike-ride around Frederick, sustainable-minded vendors, family-friendly environmental education, sustainability living tips, electric vehicle displays and more. Music will be provided during the Festival by Frederick Acoustic Music Enterprise (FAME).

The festival will again be situated around Culler Lake, in Baker Park, Frederick, MD, close to the Hood College campus, and will occur from 10 am – 4 pm. Additional activities are being planned before and after festival hours and the schedule of events will be announced closer to the event date.

Vendors from local businesses and not-for-profit organizations promoting sustainable products and practices are sought for this one-day festival. Information on vendor space and online applications are now being accepted until April 2, 2018. Food vendor applications are being accepted by invitation only.

Special emphasis: Collection of recyclable items. If your organization is willing to be a collection spot for specific items that can been recycled or reused, please let us know so we can advertise a list of items being collected to attendees.  Items could be for re-use for crafts, donated to charities or recycled through other programs.
