Sustainable Haddon Heights invites you to visit them most Sundays from 9:30 am until 1pm at their booth “Sundays by Station with Sustainable Haddon Heights” located in the Haddon Heights Farmers’ Market. Most weeks, the group will be having demonstrations on various aspects of sustainability and gardening. Currently, the “Stop Using Plastic Bags” project is underway. Stop by the table after you make your purchases at the market. For each reusable bag you have used, receive an entry into the weekly contest to win a reusable produce bag. Due to demand for the bag, they now also have them for a donation of $3, less than cost, for anyone who wants them. Many people use the traditional reusable bags at the grocery store but then take many of the small plastic bags in the produce department. They are the least reused bags! These reusable produce bags take the place of the small plastic bags. Forgot your reusable bag, stop by the booth and get a free one to use shopping. It is yours to keep or you can return at a later date.
Join GMO Free NJ for a screening of the beautifully filmed documentary Deconstructing Supper, directed by Marianne Kaplan. In under an hour this little gem of a film takes us from a five star gourmet restaurant in Canada, to genetic engineering labs, down supermarket aisles, to farms across North America, through the UK, India and back again. Refreshments will be available. Free and open to the public – bring a friend.
