LOCUS will join the usual suspects at the 2009 Living Green Expo at the MN State Fairgrounds Grandstand, May 2nd and 3rd. The expo focuses on a wide range of green topics, from food to building to energy to transportation. If you’ve not been before, it’s definitely worth your time and it’s FREE!
There’s two main components to the Expo. 1. The show floor. There’s a couple hundred exhibitors displaying all manner of green wares, systems, and ideas. It’s more easily digested and definitely more targeted than the Home Show – with all the chaff about teeth whitening, leaf-free-gutters, and infomercial-worthy junk. Even so, some of the exhibitors may cause you to wonder, “What’s green about that?” 2. Workshops. If you want to renovate your basement using non-toxic products or just want to learn how to raise chickens in your back yard, there’s a workshop to catch your attention.
The Expo is kid friendly, there will be live music, and green food. Well, not all the edibles will be literally green, but you know what I mean. Extra credit to those of you who bike or ride the bus there.
