The tenth annual Local Living Expo: Being Green Pays Off is set for 3/19/16. This year’ event will be bigger and better than ever. This is the first time this event will be at Rider University. It has expanded to include partners from nine local communities.

 This year’s Expo is organized by Mercer County Sustainability Coalition (MCSC), a partnership of green teams from Lawrence Twp., Ewing, Hopewell Valley, Princeton, West Windsor, East Windsor and Trenton and sustainability nonprofits, Sustainable Princeton and Sustainable Lawrence. Other partners include Mercer County Office of Economic Development and Sustainability and the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association.

The Expo will run from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Rider University gymnasium, which is located on the main campus, 2083 Lawrenceville Rd, Lawrenceville, NJ. The expo is free and open to the public. The popular event will feature sustainable local businesses, community groups, local farms, demonstrations and speakers throughout the day.

 In addition to more than 60 eco-friendly vendors at the expo, visitors can learn about a variety of sustainability issues and exciting community projects such as bike paths, food waste recycling, energy efficiency and wellness.

 A farmers market will feature local farms and local artisan food producers. A lunch celebrating locally sourced and seasonal ingredients will be available for purchase.

 Bring your whole family, meet your neighbors, enjoy the afternoon and learn how Mercer County area residents and businesses are building sustainable communities.  We hope to see you there.
