What’s A GreenFest?

A place where everyone gets together and shares their green ideas and products. The GreenFest took place on Saturday July 24th and Sunday July 25th at The Strawberry Fields Fairgrounds on Route 48 in Mattituck, NY 11952.  The place was filled with a solar powered stage where a great band was playing. People were dancing and enjoying themselves. There was food being served and fresh lemonade, someone was actually squeezing the lemons right in front of you. Can’t get any fresher than that! It was perfect though because the weather was hot sticky and humid. It was almost 100 degrees out. There were about fifty or so exhibitors.  A lot of booths had clothes, jewelry, sunglasses and the usual. There were a lot of green companies like solar power, solar thermal, solar tools.  We talked to a bunch of booths.  We liked the solar company that was powering smoothies. We were particularly fond of the women who was having people sign a petition to have solar panels made in The United States, apposed to being made in China.  This will be a great thing because it would open up more jobs, and boost our economy.

Does anyone know of any green events going on on Long Island?
