BYOE, Bring Your Own Everything Picnic* and Toy Swap

 

*No food for purchase, don’t forget to pack your lunch!

 
 

Join us for a day of family fun, sharing and education at Sunset Park. We are hosting a zero waste picnic and toy swap to help grow the GGHP family. What is zero waste? It means we’re not throwing anything into the garbage! We’re challenging you to get creative with your picnic basket and show us how you packed a lunch with less waste. Learn more about recycling, composting food scraps, waste reduction AND go home with some new-to-you toys! Only $5 per family!

Toy Swap? Tell me more!

Good toys no longer sparking joy? Bring in up to 3 gently used toys to trade in for tickets. After 1:00 the swapping begins. Check out the toys and use your tickets to pick out something new to you.

Enter our raffle for a chance to win your very own Wienermobile!

Your little loved ones could be riding in delicious style when you win this ultra unique, vintage, ride in Wienermobile.  

Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. What a deal!!

Zero Waste 100% Reusable Picnic Kit

Make you kit for free by reusing old take-out containers, tubs from yogurt or dips, beverages and a shopping bag or invest in an all-in-one backpack. Pack finger food to avoid utensils all together. Put your peels and food scraps back in a resealable container to compost at home.


 
This was free to assemble with old containers from home. Finger foods eliminate need for utensils.
