Greenfox at Earthfest
Greenfox will host a table at this year’s EarthFest on the promenade in Boston. Earthfest is a free event hosted by Radio 92.9 offering live music from popular bands, countless vendor tables presenting educational displays, exhibits, food and product samples, as well as kid-friendly activities, including the Kid’s Planet Stage. Greenfox Schools will be sponsoring a table for the day and have several craft projects to entertain your kids while educating them on the environment.
Join us May 21st for a fun-filled and family-friendly day of activities. Then, celebrate the start of summer the following Thursday at Kitty O’Sheas, where we will hold our own EarthFest party! Click here for more info on these two exciting events.
The Great Outdoors
Cambridge Greenfox students have spent time outdoors this month exploring the Greenspace right in their back yards. The students watched New England come to life, observing bugs, planting seeds, learning about trees that are native to the area, and preparing for Fresh Pond Day.
Fresh Pond Day is an event on Sunday, May 7 at the Fresh Pond Reservation in Cambridge, MA. All are invited to enjoy and explore this wonderful natural space, rain or shine. The event includes story telling, nature walks, scavenger hunts, and much more. Greenfox Schools will be at Fresh Pond Day helping people pot trees to take home to grow.

In an informative and fresh approach to describing the word “sustainability,” Kristen von Hoffmann, Founder and Chair, writes about sustainability and the role of sustainability in education.
