Saturday 24th September sees the start of the Great Big Green Week, and Market Harborough will taking part in a big way! Sustainable Harborough Community and Eco Village are combining forces to make Harborough Big Green Week, which this year will run from Saturday September 24th to Sunday October 2nd, bigger and better than ever.
To kick things off there will be a Launch Event at the Eco Village on Sept 24th, starting at 10am, and being opened by Council Chairman Councillor Bannister. The event will see the launch of two exciting new projects - Harborough Community Fridge and Harborough Climate Pledge. There will also be lots of pop up stalls showcasing local environmental groups and local food producers, and generally giving people a taster of what is coming in the following week.
There then follows a week packed full of green events in various venues around the town and the surrounding area - cycle rides, walks, special menus in local cafes, mindfulness sessions, story telling, a green business event, a Food Summit, opportunities to Measure Your Carbon Footprint, litter picks, a photography exhibition, allotment tours, and lots more. Visit our website to see all of the events on offer. And keep going back to look, because we are adding more events every day.
And then there will be Big Green Saturday on October 1st in The Square, where local environmental and sustainability groups will be showcasing what they do, and giving local people the opportunity to get involved. Browse round the stalls, learn about how to lead a more sustainable life, take part in some fun activities, and then sit and enjoy some great street food from local Farrinheight Foods and Two Old Goats. Again, check out the SHC website for a full list of stalls.
