Seward Neighborhood Sustainability Fair March 17 at Faith Mennonite Church

Neighborhood Sustainability Fair! Please Join Us!

Please join us at the Seward Neighborhood Sustainability Fair, Saturday, March 17, 2012, from 1:00-5:00 pm. The fair will be held at Faith Mennonite Church, 2720 East 22nd St., Minneapolis, in the Seward neighborhood.

Your neighbors and local groups that work towards sustainability would like to share their ideas with you–and have you join them in such activities as a Clothing X-Change (bring clothes to swap), small Electronics Recycling (bring those old cell phones, P4 computer processors, harddrive and DVD drives, etc., but no CRT’s, please), garden seeds to swap, and your bike that needs tuning or repairing.

Meet your local urban farmer and find out what Seward Coop is up to. Find out what tips your neighbors have about ways they work towards using less of the Earth’s resources and becoming more self reliant.

We are all part of an interdependent web of plants, animals, air, sun, water, and other people. Bring materials that are part of your life or that connect you to this great living tapestry–to weave together with your neighbors. You can bring a strip from favorite clothing or ribbons that hold pictures showing loved ones or places you love, or vines and stems or even plastic strips–anything you can think of.

We want to create an event which is fun and hopeful, while providing opportunities for learning, networking, and increasing the sustainability of our daily lives. Please join us!

If you have questions or comments, please contact Phil Stoltzfus at Faith Mennonite Church, at 612-375-9483, or minstaff@faithmennonite.org
