Awesome Earth Day event

Yesterday, my daughter and I attended an Earth Day Fair at the Bryant Montessori School in Tacoma, where I was helping to staff a table for the Tacoma Food Co-op. It was everything I had hoped the Livable Communities Fair would be. Held on the school grounds, the event had lots of activities for children, a lot of small, home-based vendors selling handcrafted items, information about sustainable living, and lots of gardening information, including local farms which had plant starts for sale or, in some cases, to give away.

But the best part about it was the feeling of community. That is my conviction now: sustainability should always be about community.
