“The earth mourns and withers, the world languishes and withers; the heavens languish together with the earth. The earth lies polluted under its inhabitants for they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant. ” ~Isaiah 24:4-6

Join Faith in Place and hundreds of other environmental organizations and business this year at the Chicago Greenfest.
Celebrating what’s working in our communities, the Chicago Green Festival™, a joint project of Global Exhange and Green America, showcases more than 350 diverse local and national green businesses. More than 150 renowned speakers appear for insightful panel discussions and presentations.
You’ll also enjoy great how-to workshops, green films, a Fair Trade pavilion, yoga classes, kids’ activities, delicious organic beer, wine and cuisine, and live music.
Find out how Midwest neighbors, community nonprofits and city departments are working together to make their cities healthier places to live. For more information about Greenfest, visit the event website at www.greenfestivals.org/chicago.
***Faith in Place needs volunteers to help run our booth and talk about Faith in Place to Greenfest attendees. Shifts last 3-4 hours, including plenty of time to explore the festival which, believe us, you won't want to miss!
