Family-friendly, free, and full of surprises, the Sustainable Ballard Festival is celebrating its 10th year with more interactive exhibits than ever. Festival goers can test ride an electric bike, sample Ballard craft brews and food, win prizes, catch some live music on the solar-powered main stage, watch chef demonstrations, press fresh cider, and meet goats, chickens, rabbits, and ducks.
NW SolarFest: Renewable Energy & Sustainable Living Fair is a family fun event with exhibits, activities, food and fun. Don’t miss the KIDZone; the first 300 kids get their own free solar mini car and can race it on the track. Play at the recycled cardboard “arcade”. Enjoy water fun at the solar fountains. And don’t miss CASPAR BABYPANTS on the main stage at 11 am.
This FREE event is Saturday, July 27, 10am-6om at Shoreline Community College with the beer garden and the live music continuing until 8 pm.
Resilience is the ability to bounce back following a disturbance or interruption. Alex Wilson, President of the Resilient Design Institute, will present "Resilient Design as a Driver of Sustainability."
There's a biochar workshop on April 27-28 from 9-4:00 in Woodinville. It only costs $35, and you'll get to take home a biochar stove of your own which can be used on your farm. The flyer is attached.
It is hosted at Morethana Farm which is located in Woodinville next to 21 Acres. The farm is co-leased by Antioch University, Pacific Bamboo Resources, and SeaChar, and the goal of the farm is to become a permaculture education center.
This workshop is made possible by a grant to Antioch given by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc.
