Eco-Fun at Green Alliance Sustainability Fair
Electric cars, fair-trade vendors, yoga, wildlife and a rock-climbing wall will welcome attendees of the first annual Green Alliance Sustainability Fair, held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 26 at Lapham Peak Unit, in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Early risers can begin the day by joining Reaching Treetops for yoga on the fairgrounds, starting at 8 a.m. The fair, an initiative of the Waukesha County Green Team, allows nature lovers to discover things to see and do in Waukesha County.
Guided hikes will teach children and adults to identify birds, insects and trees. Short talks will cover energy education, sustainable retirement, master gardening, group solar investment, wilderness first aid, composting, permaculture, native prairie planting and include an appearance from the Wildlife In Need Center. Products from Plowshare Fair Trade and Trades of Hope promise fair-trade shopping opportunities, and more than 30 vendor and exhibitor tents are planned.
The Green Alliance is an initiative of Waukesha County Green Team. It brings together businesses, nonprofits, governments, educational institutions and individuals to help improve the economic vitality and quality of life in Waukesha County by maximizing the collective impact of individuals and organizations dedicated to environmental sustainability. Businesses and organizations interested in participating as exhibitors can sign up through July 30.
