12th Annual Green Festival in Collingswood!

Let’s go green together. The 12th Annual Green Festival is happening on April 24, and we want you to be there! Whether you are an eco-friendly expert or just getting started on your own green initiatives, the Collingswood Green Festival provides copious resources to support you on your journey to sustainable living.

Conveniently located along Irvin Avenue (near the PATCO speedline), the festival lasts from 9am to 2pm– but the impact of the day remains well beyond that timeframe.

“The Green Festival invites us to expand upon our role in stewardship of our earth, to practice earth friendly living in our homes and community and to teach our children how precious our resources are ” said Commissioner Joan Leonard.

Start your spring and summer gardening with beautiful plants and seedlings found at the festival including herbs, tomatoes, and flowers. Find shade trees and shrubs, too.

Residents can pre-order discounted compost bins and rain barrels to pick up at the festival. See Composters & Rain Barrels below.
