Join your neighbors as we share resources and teach each other ways to make our homes, neighborhoods and communities safer, healthier, more resource (materials, energy and money) efficient and more fun!
- Take part in hands-on skill building workshops, such as seed starting, edible landscaping, networking with faith communities, composting, neighborhood watch and safety, new ideas for healthy lunches and snacks, food preservation, emergency preparedness, and bee and chicken keeping;
- Connect with public and private organizations that have practical information you can use;
- Panels and presentations– learn from local experts;
- Visit our youth education area to share in crafts and see demonstrations, projects, ideas, art, writing and more created by local youth.
Admission to the Green Neighbors Faire is free. Bring a brown bag lunch, or enjoy the food carts outside.
Immediately before the Green Neighbors Faire, from 10:00 – 11:00 AM, the Neighborhood Leaders Council Committee on Sustainability will be hosting author Richard Heinberg as he gives a talk titled: Transitioning After Growth: Connecting Community, Economy, Energy and Environment. Please join us.
