Albany’s Arts and Green Festival – May 3, 2015


The Albany Arts and Green Festival is coming up, just as the case for living more resource-lite (read water, energy) becomes ever more pressing.

Will you help us have the best table ever this year? The more people who put their heads together on something like this, the better things turn out; as a lone wolf, it’s been hard for me to learn this, but it’s true..

Whether it’s helping implement ideas for the table or being there on the day, we can really use your input and energy. See below the fold for some current ideas.

It’s all happening from 11 am to 4 pm at the Albany’s Memorial Park, 1325 Portland Avenue – (yes; the site of the beautiful Edible Landscape!) – and there will be all kinds of great things going on all day. Stay tuned for details, but this is definitely the place to be on May 3rd if you want to see positive change.

Some ideas so far:

  • Info about the May 17th inaugural event of the Albany Carbon Reduction Team (ACRAT)
  • Greywater installation offers from Grateful Roots – a great way to beat the drought and still grow food
  • Free plants (or for a donation) – I have yacon starts and purple tree collards
  • Sign-ups for Transition Streets launch later in May (click link for a short promotional video)
  • Info about the East Bay Affordable Housing Week and subsequent events on that subject in Albany, as well as what the Diverse Housing Working Group is planning.
  • Updates and sign ups for Edible Landscape work parties

More ideas? Help with making it a great table? Please contact Catherine at 528-2261 or if you can help. Thank you!
