Calling all education, environmental, and community organizations in Rhode Island! Don’t miss this opportunity to reach over 13,000 visitors during the 40th Annual Harvest Fair!
Do you have an interactive, informative display or table top activity that would engage visitors and spread the word about the important work that you do? The NBS Harvest Fair is a great place to share your mission and resources with families from across Rhode Island – best yet, you’ll be helping to support environmental education efforts throughout the OceanState!
If you are interested in participating in this year’s Harvest Fair Community Tent, have any questions or would like additional information, please contact
Pat Galuska at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-847-7315 or the NBS office at 401-846-2577.
The Master Gardner’s will be in the tent and offering testing of soil, so bring your samples!
Looking for talented crafters!
The Craft Committee gives priority to old-fashioned crafts using natural products. All exhibitors and crafts are subject to approval by the Craft Committee. We have space for approximately 60 craft exhibitors and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Craft Committee limits the number of similar crafts and many categories fill up quickly. Please apply early.
For information and application, please call the Norman Bird Sanctuary at 401-846-2577 or Pat or Mary at the phone numbers or e-mails listed below. Please no calls after 8:00 PM.
