The 8th Annual Living Local Expo is set for March 28, and it will be bigger and better than ever. Organized by Sustainable Lawrence in partnership with the green teams from Lawrence, Ewing, Hopewell Valley, Princeton, Trenton, Sustainable Princeton and the Mercer County Office of Sustainable Development, the popular free event will feature sustainable local businesses, community groups, local farms, cooking demonstrations, and the “Ask your Neighbor” table, where visitors can hear how homeowners completed successful energy-efficient home projects.

The Expo will be held Saturday, March 28, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the National Guard Armory, which is located on Eggerts Crossing Road in Lawrence. The event is free and open to the public. In addition to the more than 60 eco-friendly vendors at the Expo, visitors can hear speakers discuss a variety of sustainability issues ranging from monarch butterflies, to organic farming, to energy efficiency and more.

Meet representatives from local organizations to learn about projects like new biking paths, walking trails, food waste recycling, wellness, fitness, and other community projects. Immerse yourself in the arts while your children make butterfly magnets from recycled materials.

And if you have household items that you would like to get rid of, a Rescue Mission truck will be on hand to accept your donations.

Bring your whole family, meet your neighbors, enjoy the afternoon and learn how Mercer County area residents and businesses are building sustainable communities.
