I’m about to go down to the Convention Center for a press preview of the Ninth Annual Green Festival, which will be held this weekend. It will have an expanded variety of food programming, demonstrations and displays.
Joe Yonan will do a workshop based on his newly released book Eat Your Vegetables September 22 at 1 PM. DC vegan baker and two-time winner of the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” Doron Petersan will also share recipes to make her vegan creations at 3 PM. Both have been guest chefs at the Olney Farmers and Artists Market, so expect good things from them!
The event also features an Organic Food Court and a Sustainable Beer & Wine Garden. There are also dozens of booths, demos and displays on the show floor itself that can be explored through the event’s website: www.greenfestivals.org.
I will be dividing my time this weekend among this event, the National Book Festival, and the farmers market. I intend to rest on Monday!
