All Are Welcome at the Living Green Fair in Burlington this Saturday!

The Living Green Fair will be held at the LEED-certified UVM Davis Center on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is free.
Learn how to make more environmentally and socially conscious decisions in your everyday life and have some fun!
Programming will include workshops and activities for adults and children, as well as a variety of exhibitors who want to share their knowledge with you. We welcome those of all ages looking to learn and understand more about what sustainability is and how we can make it a part of our everyday lives.
A highlight of the event will be two performances by Donald Knaak, aka The Junkman, featuring a short solo concert followed by an interactive “Junk Jam” in which he invites children in the audience to play his “junk music” instruments, which are made of 100 percent recycled materials.
Other activities include Vermont Acro Yoga demos, an interactive Lego energy activity hosted by Vermont Energy Co-op and workshops presented by UVM’s Environmental Studies Program, CSWD, Go Chittenden County, Efficiency Vermont and VPIRG. Paul Burns, VPIRG’s executive director, will offer opening statements in the Maple Ballroom at 10:30 a.m.
Community sponsors/supporters include The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, The University of Vermont Environmental Studies Program, The Vermont Student Environmental Program (VSTEP), Go! Chittenden County, WCAX-TV, Green Living Journal, Efficiency Vermont, Chittenden Solid Waste District, VT Sustainable Jobs Fund (Farm to Plate), Vermont Electric Co-op, VPIRG and Localvore Today.
The show is produced by Williston Publishing & Promotions, a locally-owned company based in Williston in conjunction with the University of Vermont. We hope you will join us!
