Earth Day Sustainability Fair

On Tuesday April 22nd from 4-8pm were hosting our 6th annual Earth Day Sustainability Fair in the Beer Garden! This fun, informative community affair aims to raise awareness about the numerous resources available to us locally in Bellingham. Several Whatcom businesses will have booths staged in the Beer Garden with representatives on hand to answer questions and showcase samples of their products and services. From CSA’s, and human powered machines, to recycled art — this year, this year we’ve  assembled an eclectic assortment of ‘green’ innovativeness from the community. 17 local organizations have been confirmed so far and include:

Plantas Nativa
Sustainable Connections
Cloud Mt. Farms
Common Threads Farm
Whatcom Farm to School
Ralf’s Pretzels
Smart Trips
Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association
Lia’s Vertical Garden Tower
Whatcom Museum
Northwest Rain Solutions
Community Food CoOp
Whatcom Farm to School 
Transition Whatcom
Standup Whatcom 
American Rivers 
WWU Students for Renewable Energy

 “We want to make this an afternoon of raising awareness of what great local options we have for making sustainable choices”, states Janet Lightner General Manager of Boundary Bay. This year, Boundary Bay is especially encouraging families with children to attend this free, educational and informative event. Outdoor BBQ and Bar Service will be available starting at 4PM. There will be live music by Hot Cotton, face painters from Chelle Beautiful for the kiddos and demonstrations by The Real Food Show! We even heard a baby lamb was stopping by for a visit — how can you resist that!?

We are lucky to live in a community that places importance on recycling, alternative energy and sustainable life choices…discover the different ways you can get involved too!
