Memorial Park
Albany, CA

Come join us Sunday, May 7, 2017! This event celebrates Albany’s commitment to the environment with live youth performances and green resources. Booths offer ideas for saving energy and water, connect you with local green organizations, show you how your food and lifestyle choices can make a difference, and showcase City of Albany projects.

Booths include green organizations, vendors of green solutions, local artists, City of Albany Departments, and more. Come learn about gardening and urban farming, permaculture, the benefits of eating fresh organic produce, seed sharing, and raising chickens. Peruse information on reducing waste in and around the home, check out energy efficient solutions including solar panels and window replacement, and examine electric cars. (Exhibitor map will be posted at the event)
