This weekend is chock full of spring events. There's the opening of the Headhouse Farmers' Market, an IPA Block Party in Queen Village and the annual Chestnut Hill Home and Garden Festival on Germantown Avenue.
We Grid folks will be out and about all weekend, handing out magazines and germing* farmers. On Sunday (11 a.m. - 5 p.m.), we'll have a table on the Garden Festival's "Eco Alley." Organized by Grinch (Green In Chestnut Hill), this offshoot on West Highland Avenue will feature green vendors and music by Urban Drawl.
Grinch has made a major effort over the last few years to make this festival more environmentally sensitive. You can read all about it in this feature from March's Grid.
*This term has been borrowed from the local music scene in Nashville, TN. It means to chat up or make contact with someone famous (even if its just in your head). This could be someone in a local (or national) band, a little-known cast member from a terrible reality show, or, as in this case, a bad-ass local farmer.
