The fifth annual Sustainability Fair, sponsored by the Ozaukee Community Awareness Forum and PortFish, Ltd., will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., May 19, at the First Congregational Church, in Port Washington.

The fair offers a variety of informational exhibitors, including local community supported agriculture groups and community gardens, as well as locally produced honey, live music, a silent auction, a children’s table and a snack shop.
