This past weekend, we went to the Green Life Eco Fest. We had a great time. Many local merchants and businesses were there to offer their information. The A.P.P.L.E. Center for Sustainable Living was there as well as Reinette Senum, a local who is very involved in the community, who shared her new portable shelter for the homeless. The local co-op, Briar Patch, attended and displayed the healthy food they provide in their grocery store. Nevada County Grown, a local non-profit, was there sharing their information on how they connect local farmers and ranchers to the community. There was plenty to eat at the festival, like Horn of the Bull, a local taqueria. A family-owned frozen yogurt business, Yotasia,was selling a few of their frozen yogurt treats. Each of Yotasia’s flavors are hand-crafted and homemade with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Each of their locations is on a college campus in the dining halls. We had a great time meeting other “green” businesses and getting new ideas on what we can do to be more eco-friendly.
Cooperative Games, an online store, had a booth displaying all of their games which promote team work and cooperation.
