Robbinsville Green Fair Rescheduled for June 11
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ - (April 25, 2015) - Robbinsville Township has rescheduled its inaugural Green Fair, which was postponed April 23 due to the sudden and tragic passing of Robbinsville Schools Superintendent Dr. Steven J. Mayer, to June 11 from 2-6 p.m. to coincide with Community Festival at Community Park.
The theme of the event is “Purge-Protect-Prevent.”
The concept behind the theme is to “Purge” the pollution, “Protect” what is clean, and “Prevent” future pollution through education to help ensure a clean environment for years to come. We are expecting between 30-40 exhibitors, several local and statewide organizations along with local dignitaries to be on hand.
The Green Fair will cater to all ages and consist of a healthy assortment of vendors ranging from non-profit and civil organizations to local and regional businesses. Vendors are expected to cover everything from clean water & soil, to green building materials and environmentally-friendly maintenance methods. Music and food also will be available.
If your environmentally-friendly organization would like to participate and have access to free exhibit space at the Green Fair, please contact Kevin Holt at (609) 918-0002 ext. 113, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sustainable Jersey representatives announced November 3 that Robbinsville Township met the rigorous requirements to achieve Sustainable Jersey certification by being approved for 17 actions in 7 categories for a total of 170 points.
Formerly Washington Township, Robbinsville first was established as a farming community in 1860.
“Although we are now a leader in business and industry the Sustainable Jersey certification, combined with our upcoming Green Fair, proves we are still very environmentally conscious,” Mayor Dave Fried said.
