Greenfest 2010 was a blast! It was held on October 16, 2010 at Kennedy Plaza in Long Beach, NY. We had 27 Vendors and 4 bands in total including The Long Beach Farmers Market. Some 200-300 people attended and were educated in Green areas of Solar Energy, Healthy Eating, Home Living & Eco-Products for every day living. You can't have a good Greenfest without thanking all our vendors, sponsors and people who helped make Greenfest a huge success.
First to Melaleuca, Shaklee and Wow Green. They are part of our Home living which is key to anyone looking for ways to improve their health and way of life in the home. Also on hand, was my friend Prudy who displayed Tupperware to help you preserve veggies and fruits. My friend Lloyd and his crew were ready to assist anyone who came to Greenfest by getting all the junk out of their attic, or basement. The folks at 1-800-Got Junk? are ready to help you 24/7. Thank you to IMI Software for hosting and maintaining The Green Project of Long Island's website.
