Join TreeHuggers and Lower Eastsiders for New York City Apple Day & Go Green Lower East Side this Sunday October 19th, 2008 from 11am - 4:30pm for more than just free apples!
This year marks the first annual New York City Apple Day sponsored by the Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID) and the Greenmarket. The festival will be held at what was once the Delancey Apple Orchard in the mid 1700's. Apple day will be a fun, and most importantly free, event for children and adults featuring everything from a live honey beehive to an old-fashioned apple cider press. As promised this event is more than just apples, Go Green Lower East Side and the Sierra Club will be giving away 500 energy efficient light bulbs and providing information on how to go green. Manhattan Borough President, Scott M. Stringer will be on hand with over 100 community members, organizations and leaders.
