Green Concord Harvest Festival

by Shane Smith, Outreach Coordinator

Thanks to all who came out in support of the Green Concord Harvest Festival on September 8. All proceeds from the festival benefited the Five Rivers Conservation Trust.  Specifically, funds were earmarked for the final acquisition of land adjacent to Dimond Hill Farm.  Included in the acreage is valuable farmland, woods, and wetlands owned by the Triacca family.  Collectively we raised $3,000 to directly support the Triacca project.

The event included food, beverages and music of all kinds-all of it donated or supplied at cost.  We are all very thankful to have such deep community support for local land conservation projects.

The Co-op was one of three Green Concord member food vendors at the event.  Chef Mike served up BBQ chicken and corn from Dimond Hill.  The Works and Cafe Indigo were also on hand  offering vegetarian and vegan options for food.
Green Concord is an alliance of local businesses in the Concord, New Hampshire area that offer environmentally-friendly products and services. We seek to foster a greener way of doing business and create a truly sustainable local economy.  The Co-op is one of the founding members of Green Concord and continues to be very active in the group.
