(Savannah, GA) The New South Café is proud to take part in GreenFest 08 which is being held Saturday, September 13th, starting up at 9AM at Trustees Garden located on 88 Randolph Street. The GreenFest Culinary Challenge begins at 3:30PM with The New South Café and Cha Bella presenting their gourmet dishes to a panel of judges to see who created the most delicious, attractive and Greenest dish using a variety of local, organic products.
This is the second annual GreenFest, a local festival held to generate interest in the Green movement and to promote Green practices locally. Likeminded people are able to gather and enjoy food and fun while also gaining knowledge on the local effects of global warming and how they can make a difference.
GreenFest 08—themed “Connect and Take Action”—will feature music, earth-friendly foods, and a variety of Green goods and vendors. Artists will be displaying their recycled works and a holistic tent will hold mini yoga, tai chi and massage sessions. In addition, experts will be on hand to inform attendants on the many ways we can all make a difference in reducing our carbon footprint.
With awareness becoming more widespread these days on the hazards facing our planet, many people have become interested in making changes but don’t know where to begin. GreenFest is a perfect place to go to get informed and get started! After all, it all starts with you. Beginner’s Resources will be provided by GreenFest coordinators including rain barrel kits, composting classes and biodiesel conversion kits.
According to Maria Fernanda Castro, festival coordinator and owner of festival sponsor GreenLife Space, The New South Café and Cha Bella were selected for the Culinary Challenge because they are known to be the Greenest restaurants in the area, consistently using local, organic products in their dishes.
GreenLife Space was created to provide guidance for going Green. A few of their many services include recycling for local restaurants and businesses, Green consulting, energy efficient space planning and proper disposal of clutter and toxic products.
