Keep Statesboro-Bulloch Beautiful and the City of Statesboro are gearing up for the ninth annual GreenFest in downtown Statesboro. The event is set for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18 with sustainable fun for the whole family to enjoy.
According to a release from Amanda Clements, coordinator for Keep Statesboro-Bulloch Beautiful, the goal of GreenFest 2023 is to educate the public about sustainable solutions available in the community and to share green resources and eco-friendly ideas in an outdoor festival atmosphere.
