KITTERY — This summer the Green Alliance is celebrating the second birthday of the Green Alliance Green Families Club. On Wednesday,August 27, from 4 – 7 p.m. the Green Alliance will be hosting a Green Families Celebration and Farmer’s Market in Kittery at the regular Wednesday Kittery Famers Market location at 10 Shapleigh Road. The bash is free and open to the public.

“This year we have collaborated with the Kittery Farmers Market to create a 2-in-1 event that is both a green fest and a farmers market so that young and old and everyone in between can support local farmers and pick up fresh veggies while enjoying live music and educational booths hosted by local green businesses,” explains Sarah Brown, GA director and founder. “There will be birthday cake and electric bike test rides, a natural food truck, and even a kids essay reading on environmental summer fun!”

The event is being held right in Kittery on Shapleigh Road in front of the Kittery post office with the regular Wednesday early evening Kittery Farmers Market.

The Green Families Club (GFC) was created in July 2012 in response to market research which revealed the GA’s membership was largely made up of families with young children. The GFC set out with the goal to inspire a young generation of environmentalists, or “future environmentalists” (as the GFC t-shirts proudly boast).
