Half of the proceeds will go towards the ongoing restoration of the Caretaker’s House in Fairhaven – a project led by the Center for Local Self Reliance – into a community permaculture site. The CLSR has overcome many hurdles in transforming this once abandoned building into a facility that focuses on teaching sustainable agriculture and the proceeds from the fundraiser will support this CLSR project. The other half of the proceeds will go towards funding various projects sponsored by Sustainable Bellingham, which concentrates on community building, living ecologically-sensitive lifestyles, urban gardening, permaculture, and alternative transportation.
We’ll have our BBQ up and running till the sun goes down, so you can enjoy burgers (including veggie and salmon) and french fries while you listen to live music by Misty Flowers, Kit Nelson, Keaton Collective and The Endorfins. There’ll also be a raffle with a Kona WorldBike being raffled off around 10pm. You don’t have to be present to win…you just need to buy as many raffle tickets as you can to up your chances of winning! Raffle tickets are $1 each and all of the proceeds also go directly to The Center for Local Self Reliance and Sustainable Bellingham. They’ll even be live streaming this event on livestream.com as well as peacedaytv.com. And, of course, we’ll have our garden bar open and lots of our award winning handcrafted beer for you to choose from, so you can’t go wrong!
Join us Saturday, July 16th, 5pm – all ages till 10
