Trash to Treasure Green Craft Fair


You are cordially invited to attend the
4th Annual Trash to Treasure Green Craft Fair
 Saturday, November 10 from 10-4pm

Go green with your holiday shopping this year!  Join us for our FREE green craft fair this Saturday, November 10 from 10am-4pm at Watkins Nature Center, located in Watkins Regional Park.  Explore environmentally-friendly, hand-crafted products from local artists.  Items for sale include jewelry, wood carvings, knitwear, gardening d├ęcor, and much more. 

There will be something for everyone at this year’s fair:

· Purchase a raffle ticket, and have a chance to win great prizes like a MOM’s grocery store gift card, hand painted rain barrels, golf and fitness passes, performance tickets, and more!
· Hands-on activities and crafts for the kids all with a sustainable focus, as well as environmental non-profit groups with educational displays.
· Book Exchange —  Bring your unwanted books and trade them in for “new” ones!  All leftover books will be donated to local libraries in Prince George's county.
· Learn about natural dying and create your own indigo dye cloth with the kids.
· Purchase art and craft supplies, and make a creative reuse craft with your child at the SCRAP action booth.  For information about SCRAP store, programs they offer, or where to donate materials, visit
