The environmental nonprofit, TreePeople, is holding their 1st Annual Green City Fair, a free family-friendly day of fun, food, and activities at their headquarters in Coldwater Canyon Park.
Gotta love green + free!
“Inspired by the core elements of a functioning community forest – trees, water, soil and people – visitors will learn how to green their home, campus or workplace, by harvesting rainwater, conserving water and energy, reducing waste and preventing pollution of stormwater, cooking eco-friendly cuisine, and more easy choices that make a difference.”
