Another Successful Season for GN at the Newton Farmers Market


Farmers Market Crew at Cold Spring Park

Markets which took place at both Cold Spring Park in Newton Centre and Elm Street in West Newton. Many thanks to the visitors, volunteers and vendors who made it possible! Along with the ice cream, fruits and vegetables, baked goodies and more, we have many memories of happy days at the Green Newton tent and look forward to next year.

A record number of helpers at our booth made it possible for all to have a good time while teaching/learning about the environment and positiv actions we can take.
