POLLINATOR GARDEN: Find out more information from Newton’s Pollinator Working Group about using native plants in your garden. Visit the demonstration pollinator garden at Newton City Hall (partially supported by a Newton Conservators grant) to see how you can help sustain our native bees, butterflies, and insects and the plants that sustain them. Look for their info table at the festival!
GREEN TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE: Are you looking to lead a greener lifestyle? We have a terrific line-up of exhibitors ready to answer all your questions on waste reduction & composting, electric vehicles, solar power, insulation, heat pumps, gardening & pollination.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE DISPLAY: Are you considering an Electric Vehicle? Check out the EV Display at the festival, where many of our Newton neighbors will be available to tell you more about their experience. This is the perfect time to ask an EV owner about charging stations, EV ranges, pricing, and other questions. FOR KIDS Our Earth Day Festival is jam packed with fun activities for kiddos of all ages. There will be a petting zoo, face painting, books, bingo, nature themed activities, ice cream, music and more!
