“Local products, local food, local fun!”
That is the tagline for the first-ever Springfield Green Festival, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, April 26, along Depot Street (the road where the new farmers market is located).
Organized by the New Pioneers for a Sustainable Future, the event will, in part, focus on teaching the local population about how it can help the environment and how it can be fiscally beneficial for someone to “go green.”
