Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival
The annual Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 26, at the YWCA. Designed to be as much a community expo as it is a festival, the event is dedicated to promoting all aspects of sustainability in Tucson and southern Arizona.
Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival will feature sustainability issues from solar for the home to growing food and native plants, aquaponics and other key environmental issues. The “co-op cluster” features local co-ops, including Food Conspiracy. The DIY demonstration area will offer an opportunity to see hands-on sustainability skills in action, including water efficiency, container gardening, solar cooking and energy applications, home energy, recycling and more.
The DIY area will also showcase a new vegetable garden that festival volunteers are building for the YWCA. Local and native foods will be featured through tastings and demonstrations in the exhibit courtyard. In the food court area, delicious local food will be available for purchase. The Tucson Electric Vehicle Association will be on hand with a display of electric vehicles.
Volunteers are welcome. Admission is free. Location: 525 Bonita Ave. For more information, call 520-297-1739 or email [email protected]. See ad, page 8.
