Since the Green Man Festival began nine years ago, artists have connected their imagination to the sights and sounds of our natural world. Surrounded by our majestic green forests and simpler green spaces found at the edge of the built world where the Green Man lives, it is easy to uncover images that inspire.
This year is special…
It celebrates the 10th year the Greenbelt Forest Preserve became a protected woodland in Greenbelt. There are many interesting and historic visuals that commemorate this place… a living monument to our past, present and future…affirming its most enduring legacy to Keep it Wild and Wooded!
Whether it is brilliant yellow butter cups in a field, trees growing tall and wild or along the street, a stream with rocks, a snake, robins nesting, native grasses, quiet green spaces, they all deserve our attention and protection now more than ever.
It is the Green Man who comes back year after year to remind us of their importance, in the spirit of celebration and hope, asking you to get involved, plant trees, grow the tree canopy.
