This weekend is overflowing with great green happenings for the region. Let's start with Allegheny County's Green Innovation Festival at Hartwood Acres. Held Saturday, Sept. 29, 11 a.m. till 4 p.m., the festival has something for everyone and more. Learn about sustainable living while the kids enjoy face Painting, balloon art and the pumpkin patch.It's all free and there's plenty of parking.
And in the spirit of sharing you can help others in our community by bringing along something to recycle ... your gently used tote bags to those pesky bottle tops that can't go into the regular recycling bins to medical supplies for Global Links to your used vegetable oil for GTECH Strategies/ReFuel. For more information and a complete list of Exhibitors, Vendors & Demonstrations along with the children's event schedule, just give a click here.
Feel like hanging in the city, doing a little shopping and maybe checking out the new shops at the Bakery Square in the East End? If so, this is the weekend to head east for the final "I Made It Marketplace" of the season on Sunday, Sept. 30th, 12 - 4:30 p.m. The Marketplace will feature 30 I Made It! Market artisans, Farm to Table vendors and live acoustic music by Mikey Yurick.
