Lincoln Square Goes Green

By Mike Fourcher | Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Earth Day, which falls on Sunday, April 22, is a great occasion to think a bit more green and this week the Lincoln Square Chamber is linking its popular Kids In The Square to a series of green events leading up to a bonanza of kid-friendly events across the neighborhood on Saturday.

As it is the inaugural Lincoln Square Green Week the schedule isn’t packed with events, the discussions planned for this evening, Wednesday and Thursday are ambitious and loaded with speakers sure to inform the “green-curious” in the neighborhood.

Tonight the week kicks off with a panel discussion on green business, including speakers on how to start a green business, how to make your business more green and the organic food business. To top it off, there’s a light dinner supplied by Angel Food Bakery.

Wednesday the discussion turns to the home as the Chamber brings in speakers to discuss raising a child in a toxic world. This one is expected to be popular, so RSVPs are requested.

On Thursday evening, the Chamber is hosting a gardening discussion at the Lill Street Art Center to connect with other gardeners.

And then the ever-popular Kids in The Square on Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. will include green events like making a rot pot at Enjoy and not-so-green events like a free showing of “The Smurfs” at 10:00 a.m. at the Davis Theater.
