Team Green World (TGW) brings our unique style of environmental education to Green Festival DC. We call it “Eco-edutainment!” TGW’s mission is “to provide education through fun & inviting musical messages in environmental issues, science and causes.” Remember how you learned your ABC’s? It was through music! Children of all ages will learn how to “think ecologically” with our interactive puppet production created by Kat Korac, who is also a CGMA Songwriter of the Decade from Nashville. Come meet our puppets Professor “E”, Grady and Lazy Mae and be invited to join in and dance to our high energy “Lean Green Dancing Machine” song with Eco the Butterfly. They will also be entertained with original “eco-friendly” songs by Oscar contending vocalist and TGW President, Donna Britton Bukevicz, along with our 12 year old “Rising Star” Tystan Manahan, Student at Allegro Community School of Arts in Warrenton, VA, from our mentoring program.
