On April 25, 2009, Waynedale Green Alliance & Southwest Conservation Club, 5703 Bluffton Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana will unite for GreenFEST ‘09: In Celebration of Earth Day Week. This is the first annual Green Festival to take place in northeastern Indiana, and a great opportunity to become involved in all aspects of sustainable living.

Speakers from Citilink, Allen County Solid Waste District, and Save the Maumee Grassroots Organization will be on hand along with a finale concert by Cathy Serrano, Bill Certain, Skip Calvin of Guitar Exchange, and Dan Dickerson of Harp Condition.
Food, talent displays by All Martial Arts Academy, a presentation by Laura Stein of Neuhouser Nursery, giveaways by local companies, and games are all planned for the day.
Businesses involved in alternative transportation, local and sustainable building, renewable energy, local food, sustainable water, and fair trade will all have a presence.
Admittance is a canned good or non-perishable food item that will be donated to Community Harvest of Northeast Indiana.
