An estimated 6,000 people attended the Annual Montgomery County Green Fest at Brookside Gardens. For the first time ever, this venue partnered up with both government and non profit organizations for an earth-friendly cause in this fest.
Inside the Brookside Gardens there was tasty food, lively music pleasing to the ears and over 70 vendor opportunities for curious festival goers to explore green options such as sitting inside an electric powered brand new Audi, which was a crowd favorite.
All the organizations at the festival had green missions and some said they want to use places like Brookside Gardens so the community can go and share information with people on how to stay green.
“We talk to the public about recyclying, solar panels, and electric vehicles to name a few,” said Director of Brookside Gardens Stephanie Oberle.
She added that Green Fest was an opportunity to help kids and the generations to come by making our world a cleaner place. “It’s a mission that each and everyone of us could contribute to daily,” Oberle concluded with a smile.
