Welcome spring with an informative fair that will be fun too:

West Vincent Elementary School will be the local destination at Ludwigs Corner on Saturday, April 5, when it hosts the West Vincent Township Sustainability Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A project of the West Vincent Township Sustainability Committee, the Fair has been planned as a one-stop resource for green items and information. Children’s activities, delicious foods, gardening experts and more will be available as well as exhibits from local schools and non-profit groups.

Auto agencies will be present to exhibit their energy-efficient models. Free rides may be arranged including those in a privately-owned Tesla roadster. Hybrid bicycles will be displayed as will maps of local trails to explore.

Energy efficiency and how to lower your bill will be addressed by PECO as well as questions about the recent power outages.

​A continuously-screened movie will permit people to sit down and relax. Yoga massages can be scheduled, and the wellness benefits of yoga and reformer pilates will be illustrated with live demonstrations.

​Non-gmo and organic foods will be available for late breakfast and lunch, and a local creamery will have ice cream samples. A celebrity chef will also make smoothie samples to illustrate the benefits of raw food.

​A new feature this year will be a Sustainability Answer Service. Do you want to know if your water is safe to drink. How do you make your own compost? When should you mulch? What questions should you ask at a farm stand? Please e-mail by April 3 any questions you would like to have answered at the Fair to: office@westvincenttwp.org. When you check in at the welcome desk, you will be directed to the correct exhibitor who will already have your question.

For more information, call 610-458-1601 or e-mail the West Vincent Township office.
