Our first annual Earthday Shindy* will be held April 19-21. The event kicks off Friday night with a Fact Slam from 5-8pm featuring five minute presentations/performances selected from our roster of 40+ earth oriented vendors.
On Saturday and Sunday 10-5pm join us for all manner of environmentalisms – from local farm products, crafty upcyclers, and green building professionals, to plant material, gardening tools, books, and energy conservation assistance; something for everyone to learn and take home. Live music, food, and performance all weekend long.
