The Eco Fair hosted at HOPE Farmer’s Market
This past March 25th 2018 was our fourth annual Eco Fair! An event that was birthed in 2014 it has been ever advancing and growing!
We believe that the Eco Fair is a fundamental pillar of what we stand for here at Austin Permaculture Guild. It serves as a platform that actively promotes, supports, and networks eco-conscious organization with the people of Austin. Hosting the eco fair creates a space for education of all ages and fosters an encouragement for people to become involved in eco-organizations. The bottom line is this is an event that creates a resilient Austin, TX.
Activities and Participants
Last year the following eco organizations attended our event:
And a special thanks to our past sponsors Euphoria Festival!
Each participant brought a myriad of fun, interactive events. We had a wide array of workshops from informational hanging mushrooms brought by Myco Alliance, to educational demos of solar ovens hosted by Solavore. We had events that connected us to nature including a plant walk hosted by Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine. We had free trees given out by Tree Folks. And we had workshops on composting (Austin Resource Recovery) and solar panel installation (Tree House). And so much more!
Also we had musicians!! The lovely band Leyline.
Over the past years we have had some major growth and achievements worth mentioning:
The eco fair and Austin Permaculture Guild was on the local news. You can see the clip here.
We also opened up the event to be supported by sponsors! Last year the organization "Euphoria Festival" sponsored our Eco Fair! This exchange has been equally fruitful for the sponsor and our APG team.
Lastly, the event has grown in leaps and bounds of attendees and organizations.
We look forward seeing you at our next Eco Fair!
