Door prizes will also be available, including a one-night stay in a room at the InnBoonsboro, the new Nora Roberts bed-and-breakfast in the square. Gift bags, baskets and cookbooks are also going to be available.
"Children will be decorating milk cartons for bird feeders," Sarnecki said. A kids zone will feature many other "green" activities for all ages.
Speakers on the program are Debbie Fiola, a horticulturalist who will give tips on growing plants; and Judy and Rudy Medicus of Cat's Paw Farm, who will share information about organic farming.
Fifteen new recycling collectors will be positioned around the park for Green Fest, mostly next to garbage cans. The Town of Boonsboro purchased the "cleartainers" for the Boonsboro Recycling Task Force.
Collecting stations will also be set up at Green Fest for recyclables such as eyeglasses and cases, egg cartons, wire clothes hangers, ink cartridges, cell phones and rechargeable batteries.
Recycling bins will be available for collection of mixed paper/newspaper, aluminum, glass and plastic (Nos. 1 and 2 only) bottles and flattened cardboard of every size.
Working with Sarnecki are committee members Rosemary James, Amy Jones, Larry Neumark, Brigitte Schmidt, Laura Schnackenberg, Janeen Solberg, Kathy Vesely and Barbara Wetzel, who also serves on the Boonsboro Town Council.
Assisting the committee is Recycling Coordinator Harvey Hoch, who serves as liaison for the Washington County Solid Waste Department.
