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:
“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!
Is it too much to ask for good, inexpensive live music that makes you feel like you are doing something good? You know, makes you feel all warm and fuzzy and good karma-y? Boundary Bay Brewery doesn’t think so.
Boundary Bay Brewery is pleased to to be raising the curtain on another season of The Late Show, a series of Friday night bi-monthly benefit concerts in the taproom featuring local, regional and national bands performing to raise money and awareness for Bellingham area non-profit organizations.
