EcoFest puts a green spin on saving the Earth
The event featured nearly 30 vendors and eight musical performers in the grassy space behind the Westport Public Library.
Visitors browsed tables with information about the environment and living "greener," sampled eco-friendly products, interacted with animals and swayed to the bands, while dodging an occasional raindrop or two.
The Fleming family of Westport was among the visitors, spending free moments between soccer games at the EcoFest. "We know the Aitkenheads of the Westport Town Farm and the kids wanted to see the rabbits and chickens they brought out," said Kay Fleming.
Allison Gazerro, one of the vendors, was showing off her Allison Wonderland Terrariums, which were self-contained ecosystems. "They're easily maintained and consist mostly of moss, which just needs to be spritzed every four weeks," she said.
