The Living Green Fair will be held at the LEED-certified UVM Davis Center on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Presented in conjunction with the University of Vermont, this will be Vermont’s signature “green consumer event.”
The goal of the event is to encourage and help Vermonters of all ages to make more environmentally and socially conscious decisions in their everyday lives, as well as foster a sense of community cooperation and awareness in a welcoming environment.
Programming will include workshops and activities for adults and children. A variety of exhibitors – featuring local food, home improvement ideas, energy efficiency, gardening and much more – will interact with attendees in a fun, educational atmosphere.
Guests will receive take-away materials to encourage them to utilize the knowledge they gain at the fair, as well as remind them of the committed, local exhibitors present so they can patronize and support their businesses and organizations.
A highlight of the event will be two performances by Donald Knaack, aka The Junkman. The Grammy nominee is currently producing a children’s television show about music and the environment entitled, “Junk Music with the Junkman.” He will present two solo concerts followed by interactive “Junk Jams” in which he invites children in the audience to play his “junk music” instruments, which are made of 100 percent recycled materials.
Community sponsors/supporters include The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, The University of Vermont Environmental Studies Program, The Vermont Student Environmental Program (VSTEP), Go! Chittenden County, WCAX-TV, Green Living Journal, Efficiency Vermont, Chittenden Solid Waste District, VT Sustainable Jobs Fund (Farm to Plate), CCTA, Vermont Electric Co-op, VPIRG, VBSR and Localvore Today.
