Great day for Green Lion: The 2nd annual Green Lion Festival


The Organic Adventurer came back from walkabout and jumped right back into the fray as an exhibitor at last Saturday’s Green Lion Festival.

Ready to go early in the morn!

Ready to go early in the morn!

What a beautiful day to be green too! The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing and some fine people were out to find out more about taking care of this gorgeous planet of ours (oh, and to try free samples at the home brew contest).

Aardwolf Brewery was a great host for the event. They even created a signature brew for it! And there were so many U.S. Green Building Council North Florida volunteers helping out that the day went very smoothly.

Here are just a few of the great vendors who were spread out from the Aardwolf parking lot to the Knights of Columbus parking lot across the street and even inside the Knights’ building!

The UNF Environmental Center…always keepin’ it real!

GastroJax always serves something tasty!

Down to Earth Farm has CSA memberships available!

FreshJax’s new quinoa cookbook is available…and awesome!

The North Florida Land Trust protects Florida’s heritage lands!

The kids who came by our table got butterfly, flower and animal stickers while the adults signed up for our T-shirt drawing (more on that later) and got some information on reducing indoor air pollution, eliminating toxic household substances, energy efficiency, food safety and security, and much, much more.

And, of course, we were thrilled to see that event organizers had not only set up a way for vendors and participants to recycle, but they had also set up a compost receptacle. Yay!

During the festival, we were asked so many good questions. Question answering is what we do, so if you’d like to set up a consultation, please use the Contact page to get in touch!

Finally, if you signed up for the T-shirt drawing, remember that you must respond to the confirmation email you received in order to complete your entry. If you didn’t get a confirmation email, please check your spam folder. If it’s not there, go to our home page and enter the same email you used at the festival where it says “Follow By Email,” and then follow the instructions that appear.

The drawing is on Thursday, so be sure to respond to the confirmation email and complete your entry by then.

Cheers to a great Green Lion!
