Residents of the Trenton community learned the importance of water conservation and hydration during the Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market’s Water Fest on Monday, July 31. During the event, children participated in educational activities at water-themed stations around the market and even play on a 22-ft. water slide. “We want the community to understand the importance of getting enough to drink whether they are playing sports, traveling, or just sitting in the sun,” said Chelsea Jackson, Greenwood Ave. Farmers Market manager.
Activities include various water-themed STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) exhibits, a sand art creation booth, and games that include fishing for prizes. Residents will also learn facts about the Delaware River, and the dangers of water pollution.
