Ever wonder if an electric car might be right for you..
Or, how to set up a home composting system?
Confused by your electric bill or renewable energy options..
What natural lawn care is, or, how and when to start a vegetable garden for best results?
On Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 10AM to 2PM, the West Vincent Township Sustainability Committee will be holding a Fair at the West Vincent Elementary School, Route 401 to answer these questions and many more. Come for lunch, meet your neighbors walk through the exhibits, listen to our speakers; learn something new, have fun! (And don’t forget to check out those electric vehicles in the parking lot!)
The purpose of the Fair is to show residents how we can live a little bit more sustainably. We will be demonstrating small actions that each of us can take to help reach our community goals while saving money and even having fun! Taken together those small actions can have a very big impact.
The Fair will have activities for all ages. Kids can build a bluebird house while they learn about the importance of natural diversity. Or they can watch how water flows through a model of our landscape to see the effects of pesticide use on lawn and fields. We welcome our most senior residents to come to Story Corps at the Historic Atlas booth to inspire us by sharing their memories of life “in the day”. Of course, there will be food provided by local vendors to please all generations and cooking demonstrations, too. There will even be an electric Tesla, a Nissan Leaf, a Ford Focus, a Chevy Volt, and a solar car made by Devon Prep students parked outside for you to admire. And hybrid and traditional bikes to check out, too.
So, plan to join your friends and neighbors on March 16th at the Sustainability Fair.
If you or your organization would like to sponsor the Fair, please contact Tammy Swavely in the township office 610-458-1601. Thanks!
