April 4, 2020

10:00am - 3:00pm

NCCL School - 401 Phillips Avenue, Newark , DE 19711

FREE!

Since 2010, Kids' Greenfest has provided child-centered, hands-on activities from sustainability experts and presenters who share practical, easy methods for changes everyone can make. Important areas of focus are renewable energy, energy conservation, wildlife conservation, and locally made or grown products.

"While many green expos are focused on products and are geared towards adults, our goal is to empower children through educational activities that help them see practical changes they can make with their families. Sustainability is a journey for each of us. Who better to help lead us on this journey than our children?" - NCCL Faculty member

BOOK SWAP!

Kids can bring gently used books to trade for more books. This is a fun and smart way to recycle.

NCCL'S OWN SMOOTHIE BIKE!

A hit every year! People can't wait to hop on our blender bike and pedal their way to a refreshing fruit smoothie!
