Green Homes Festival

2014 Green Homes Great Health Festival logo Saturday, June 7, 2014
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Rain or shine!

Help your family live green! Join us for a hands-on, day-long festival of learning, playing, and engaging with people of all ages and backgrounds with an interest in sustainable, healthy lifestyles.

For the first time, the event will be held in the William T. Kemper Center for Home Gardening, Cohen Amphitheater, and its surrounding gardens and grounds.

Explore the links between sustainability, energy efficiency, conservation at home and a healthy environment. Talk with over 70 green product and service exhibitors, learning more about home improvement and healthy homes in the beautiful environment of the Kemper Center, itself a beacon of green living.

The Festival features and highlights local foods and spirits, live music and sustainable and handmade shopping at the Green Marketplace. Presentations and demonstrations throughout the day share the many ways that plants, air, water, soil and energy sustain our homes, our health and our living Earth.

Children and families can enjoy solar car building and races, storytelling, puppet shows, making art from recycled materials and additional hands-on activities in a “Make It and Take It” do-it-yourself area.

The Festival will be held rain or shine, and there will be lots to do indoors. Bring your gardening questions to the Plant Doctor (10 a.m to noon) and your green resources questions to the “Planet Doctor” (noon to 2 p.m.),  grab a snack or beverage at the Terrace Café, shop the Green Marketplace and visit with energy and efficiency exhibitors and more green living experts!

While you’re in the neighborhood, don’t forget to drop off your unwanted electronics and appliances at our recycling event at the nearby Commerce Bank Center for Science Education, located three blocks west of the Garden.
