GRINCH's brainchild Eco Alley, the Green Branch of this years Chestnut Hill Garden Fest, was a huge success. Festival goers were over heard saying it was their fav part of the fest despite 90 degree heat!
The beautiful bamboo entrance way was created by Green Earth Gardens and the signage was sponsored by Valley Green Bank.
Local sustainable businesses that set up "shop" for the day were Big Green Earth Store, Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, Urban Girls Produce, Philly Compost, GRID Magazine, Future Tech, Night Kitchen Bakery, Rodor Caps Jewelry, Why Not Bob Store, Philadelphia Recycling Rewards, Greener U, KO Angotti energy audits, Sardine Clothing, Philly Electric Wheels, Milkshake Crafts, EcoQuette, Philadelphia University, Happy Cat Farm and Organic Mechanic Soil Co.
Deirdre Vezirov-Kilkenny of Nature Yoga and Krista of Shakti Yoga in Jenkintown held kiddie yoga sessions which was super cute. Jason Fifield's band, Urban Drawl, laid down the NewGrass tunes for all ages.
Student recycling ambassadors from the Jenks School, Teenagers Inc., OMC and Norwood Fontbonne manned recycling stations. They helped people recycle the correct items, hauled it to Valley Green Bank and onto the colorful mural arts painted recycling truck.
