Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival

Celebrate Tucson’s unique position of leadership in sustainability!

The third annual Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival will be on Sunday, October 20, 10 am-4 pm, in Reid Park at the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center (the Bandshell), off Country Club near 22nd Street.  Admission and parking are free.

At this family-friendly event, you’ll meet community organizations and companies that are creating a sustainable future in our desert Southwest. Enjoy exhibits that highlight their work and get involved through hands-on activities. Speakers will share earth-friendly messages, and local music groups will entertain throughout the day.

Festival Highlights

Festival food will feature a special GMO-free area. You’ll be able to get seeds for your home garden and take home pumpkins and fall produce. Check out the electric vehicle display, and pick up tips for cooking with the sun. Local aquaponics experts will show you how fish can help vegetables flourish in the desert. And you’ll meet the next generation of sustainability leaders, as kids demonstrate how they integrate raising food with their classroom learning.

Hiya Paula, Today I got this far, but was unable to get to the site for vendors or booth people. I do have a question on a fee for public service info, which is what Don will be doing, along with Chris Haynes. the copies and time are donations from the USDA, Natural Resouce Conservation Services, as well as the expertise. we are providing our own set up, so I think you should waive the fee. Let me know what you think.
