Hello Sustainable Puyallup!!
The Mother Earth News Fair is coming back to the Puyallup
Fairgrounds this weekend! This is a great time to carouse about
sustainability topics in the area.
Check it out here:
Sat June 2nd, 9am-7pm
Sun June 3rd, 9am-6pm
We will have our own booth outside, near-ish the NW Ecobuilding
Guild (remember the awesome workshop space with all the straw
bales?) and our sister groups Self-Reliant Community Graham and
Can you help staff the booth? I can get you a free entry to the fair...
We will be borrowing a pop-up canopy tent and will need some
decorations, chairs, tables, etc. If you can help with any of that,
please let me know. ;)
Ideally we'd assemble a small crew of us who can do setup on Friday
for a half-hour or so.
BIKE TO THE FAIR:
There will be a bike ride on both days to the fair, so please meet
up with us and don't worry about parking or traffic at the Fairgounds!
Those rides will start at 10:15 in Sumner, and 10:45 in Puyallup,
then to the Fair. Find more info at the end of this message.
BIKE TOUR AFTER THE FAIR:
We'll meet at the Gold Gate after the Fair gets out on both days.
While staffing the booth we'll be encouraging anyone with a bike to
join us on this tour to check out gardens, raingardens, and other
cool things around Puyallup. Riders and toursites are encouraged.
US AT THE FAIR:
Of course there'll be ongoing locals activity at the Sustainable
Puyallup booth, I also wanted to highlight some of our members
