On Saturday, September 9, you can learn how to better protect the environment and have a great time doing it! The City of Hyattsville’s Environmental Committee and the Hyattsville Horticultural Society are hosting the Second Green Expo that day at the City Building (4310 Gallatin Street) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Come get information, earn coupons, and buy sustainable goods from several local and regional vendors, including: Calvert Brewing, Vigilante Coffee, Big Bad Woof, Community Forklift, authors, bee keepers, yogis, advocacy groups, Prince George’s County Department of the Environment, and more than a dozen electric vehicle owners (all showing off their rides and the advantages of going gas-free).
We’ll have special performances throughout the day featuring local talent, including a blue grass duo, rock musicians, a clarinet quartet and more! Several food trucks will be parked nearby including Jammin’ Flava Jamaican and Healthy Fool.
The City will also be accepting small- to medium-size electronics for recycling, and the Environmental Committee will provide information on the City’s programs for native tree purchase rebates and English ivy removal. Don’t miss out!
