We will be hosting our EcoFair on Saturday, May 4th from 10am-2pm. It’s a family-friendly event, with activities, food, and vendors for everyone! Entry is free and our building is fully accessible.

There will be many vendors at our Ecofair – you’ll find jewelry made from coffee pods, local honey, handmade soaps, eco-friendly cleaning products, art made from reclaimed materials, and so much more.

Also featured will be non-profit groups who are doing eco-advocacy, a new Beach Home Retrofit group, solar co-ops, promoting native plants, a bike repair station, sewing repair station, a repair/reuse hub, and volunteers explaining a biodiversity count project.  

There will be games and activities for all ages including a reading circle for small children.  We’ll also have Indian street food in reusable containers and chai tea and smoothies to tempt your taste buds!

We have an exciting list of speakers lined up as well!
