The members of the Mercer County Sustainability Coalition work together to hold a number of events annually. These include the Mercer Green Fest and the Farm to Table Dinner. During the past seasons, informational sessions were held on the County’s recycling program and Sustainable Jersey for Schools. Look for more offerings as we begin planning for the coming year.
The Mercer Green Fest is held each year in March and celebrates and promotes local businesses and community groups, the arts, as well as holding cooking demonstrations, hands on workshops and presentations. The Farm to Table Dinner, held each year at Terhune Orchards, showcases the best of Mercer County’s farms, produce and restaurants for us all to enjoy at this event that supports the Mercer Sustainability Coalition. More information about each of these annual events is available at our Living Local Expo and Farm to Table pages.

The 13th annual Mercer Green Fest, will be held on March 16, and will feature sustainable local businesses and community organizations, local farms, cooking demonstrations, as well as hands-on workshops, and informational speaker presentations. The popular free event will celebrate it’s thirteenth anniversary this year.
Last year’s Green Fest was held once again in the Rider University Alumni Gym on Lawrenceville Road in Lawrence. The event was free and open to the public. More than 90 eco-friendly vendors at the Green Fest were present and visitors heard from speakers on a variety of sustainability issues ranging from local school gardening and science projects, to the future of transportation, to recycling in Mercer County and more.
Local school representatives and organizations came to inform about projects like new biking paths, walking trails, food waste recycling, wellness, fitness, and other community projects.
