The Green Team and the Environmental Commission continue to help to promote local markets and farmer’s markets at Town Day. We set up our “buy fresh, buy local” table and sold delicious fresh squeezed lemonade, home baked cookies, bread from Amato Bakery in Northvale, as well as corn from Sunden Farms in Old Tappan and peaches from Old Hook Farm.
Additionally, we handed out information about local farmer’s markets and their schedules. We also had an Earth Machine™ home composting bin on display from the Bergen County Utilities Authority (www.bcua.org) available to sell; and we spoke about composting with several residents.
Thank you to: A&P of Closter (water& cups), Old Hook Farm (organic peaches & nectarines), Sundon Farms (corn), Park Place convenience (ice), Trader Joes (plastic bags), Peter Ardito (lemons & water) and Theresa Hazelton (oatmeal cookies) for your donations in support of the HP Green Team!
