Once upon a time, there was a stay-at-home mom named Karen who loved finding uses for items considered trash by others.  She had a passion for nabbing these items off the curbs of people’s homes, working on them and eventually reselling them in consignment and resale shops.

Fortunately, this was something she was really good at and it helped make ends meet for her and her family when the economy sank at the end of 2008.

But this was more than a profitable hobby.

Karen felt she was doing something for the environment and she wanted to do even more.

So, one day, with the help of her friend Kate…

…the Big Green Head was born…

…not to mention a festival.

Located in downtown Worthington alongside the Farmer’s Market, Green on the Green helped bring awareness to the community by touching on green-friendly topics…

…including eco-friendly transportion (Nissan)…

…eco-friendly relocation (Ecopack)…

 

…better eating (Green B.E.A.N.)…

…better conservation (Tupperware)…

…better living (Natural Awakenings)…

…and some better thrill-seeking (Zipzone).

There were plants to beautify the yard (Worthington Kilbourne High School)…

…critters to help fertilize them (C.H.A. Animal Shelter)…

…and even a company that turned unwanted pet fertilizer into energy (Green Scoop)!

No lie!

But there were also shopping opportunities along those pathways with a nice assortment of jewelry…

 …accessories  (Re-Jen Re-Cycled Arts)…

…T-shirts (Stay Gra)…

…and even OSU memorabilia (to benefit the James Cotton foundation, Buck Icon).

Finally, once festival goers were ready to unwind, they could grab some kettle korn or a bagel sandwich (Short North Bagel Deli)…

…and enjoy it with some music accompaniment (Columbus Folk Music Society).

Fortunately, the rooster didn’t sing along.
