Albany Arts and Green Festival

IMG_9736_2Come and visit our tables at this fun, annual event. There’ll be a chance to make a May Day wreath and then participate in a maypole dance at 2:35 pm!

The Edible Garden will have interesting activities and contests to win unusual starts. The Diverse Housing Working Group will get you thinking about how people live who have no stable home, and how you can help them, and you’ll have a chance to register for May’s Community Resilience Challenge and get more information about Transition Streets – a neighborhood-driven effort to build resilient community.

Plenty of good ideas for greening your lifestyle even more, plus local artists and craftspeople  and entertainment from some of our excellent local musicians including the AHS music classes.

Nicotine Bees

November 8, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - Event Details

Bees everywhere are struggling to survive widely used systemic pesticides – neonicotinoids or “neonics” – that not only damage their nervous systems but make them addicts. Sound familiar? Most of our food relies, directly or indirectly, on pollination by bees, so this affects us all.

Come and get educated so we can all take effective action. A ban on neonicotinoids in Europe saw an immediate rebound in bee populations.
