Celebrate the Earth Festival with the Co-op

For two dozen years it has been the La Montanita Co-op's great pleasure to create a community celebration that provides an opportunity for us all to come together. The 24th Annual Celebrate the Earth Festival on Sunday, April 27 th in Nob Hill is a chance to get your bedding plants, talk to and learn from the farming and gardening experts in our midst, get educated on the important environmental issues we face, get active and take action to make our community and the world a better place for us all to share. As always you can expect a fun and inspiring time filled with information and education booths from dozens of environmental, social and economic justice organizations, local farmers, seedlings, drought resistant plants, beautiful art from fine local artists and crafts people, inspiring performances from some of our favorite local artists and of course great Co - op food. At the Celebrate the Earth Fest in Nob Hill , our little street fills up quickly, so please reserve your booth space early. We do give first priority to environmental, social and economic justice non - profit organizations and farmers and farming organizations. Artists and crafts people must make and sell their own art (no kits or imports allowed), be Co - op members, be juried if they have not set up with us before and be willing to participate in the ―placement lottery.‖ Some of our artists, activists and farmers will be setting up in front of Immanuel Presbyterian Church, our long time community partner and Earth Fest co - sponsor. Watch for more info in the April Coop Connection News on the fest, or visit http://lamontanita.coop/24earthfest .
