Baltimore Green Works (BGW) couldn’t have picked a lovelier day, then a truly splendid Saturday to celebrate EcoFest, and its 10th anniversary. BGW’s mission is to “support environmental efforts that better the quality of life in Baltimore.” Spacious Druid Hill Park, with its finest green coat on, in West Baltimore was the site of this year’s festivities.

EcoFest is a day of fun and activists at the park for young and old alike offering a wide variety of Green-friendly information, crafts, arts, music and activities. BGW is a volunteer-based, non-profit that has seen its attendees grow from around 400 in past years “to close to 5000 yearly.”

During the year, it offers a speaker series and workshops, among other events, which are topped off annually with its fave happening – “Baltimore Green Week.”

At the event, I talked with Ms. Christina Nutile, Program Manager, with Baltimore Green Works. She shared her view of the group and its environmental focus with me. Also, I chatted with Jeff Dicken, chair of BGCA, he brought me up to date on “BNotes-Baltimore’s Local Currency.”

Listen to their remarks, with a little drumming & juggling mixed in too in the video below.
