Sundays on the Green, a monthly festival that mixes environmentally friendly vendors, skateboarding, art, children’s educational activities, and music, kicked off on Sunday, Jan. 29. Celebrated in a 12,000-square-foot lot at 572 N.W. 23rd Street, just east of I-95, the project is the brainchild of a collective known as Wynwood Green.
