Opportunity to be part of the 2017 Renewable Energy and Sustainable Living Fair in Albany, NY

Two years ago a coalition of local environmental and cycling groups hosted a marvelous Earth Day Expo and Bicycle Parade in Albany’s Washington Park.  Last November, Becky Meier and Bob Connors of Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline organized a bustling Renewable Energy Fair complete with live Alpacas!  This year we are looking to work together to build a multi-faceted “Renewable Energy & Sustainable Living Fair” in the Capital District and we’d love your group’s participation and co-sponsorship.
Come to our organizing meeting: Wednesday August 9 at 6:30 pm at the Citizen Action office on 94 Central Avenue in Albany, NY.  Bring your ideas for this year’s fair and let us know what your group could help organize. 
 
If you can’t make it, email tlieberm1@gmail.com and let her know you’re interested, what your ideas might be and how you’d like to participate.
 
The Fair will take place on Saturday Oct. 28 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Doane Stuart School in Rensselaer – overlooking the scenic Hudson.  Becky and Bob have many alternative energy vendors/exhibitors from last year who will be returning, and there will also be electric vehicles to ride in.  Plus they are looking to broaden the Fair’s focus this year to include anything that has to do with sustainable living and breaking free from fossil fuels, for example:
 
-Earth-friendly and sustainably-sourced products and crafts
-Cycling-related vendors and activities
– A children’s “Break Free From Fossil Fuels” Project Fair
-A “Reusable Trash Fashion” show by students
-Exhibits on climate change and conservation
-Exhibits on composting, urban farming, hydro-farming and permaculture
-Hands on, interactive education
-Storytelling
and as a bonus, tours of Doane Stuart’s beautiful “Green Roof”.
Hope to see you on Wed. August 9th!  Please RSVP if you’re coming: tlieberm1@gmail.com
