Mother Earth News Fair 2012!

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 
Sustainable Tacoma-Pierce.
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.

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.

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.

Of course there'll be ongoing locals activity at the Sustainable 
Puyallup booth, I also wanted to highlight some of our members 
(people on this email list) who will be hosting workshops.
