FREE COMMUNITY EVENT!


 Presented by the Calvert County Citizen's Green Team

Green businesses & services  -  arts & crafts  -  workshops  - kids activities  - food & drink  - and more!

Formerly called the "Calvert Green Expo," the event has a new name and a new focus to bring you the freshest ideas in sustainable living! 

Join for a hands-on festival of learning, playing, and engaging with people of all ages and backgrounds with an interest in sustainable, healthy lifestyles. Explore the links between sustainability, energy efficiency, conservation at home and at work, and a healthy environment. Talk with green product and service exhibitors and learn more about home improvement and healthy homes.

The Festival features local foods and spirits, along with homegrown entertainment. Children will enjoy recycled art projects and activities. Presentations and demonstrations throughout the day share the many ways that plants, air, water, soil and energy sustain our homes, our health, and our planet.


RAIN BARREL WORKSHOP

Want to finally set up that rain barrel that you've been thinking about?  You can pre-purchase the barrel at the link below and learn how to install it during a 45-minute workshop at the Expo.  Pre-registration is recommended because space is limited.
