Once again the Faith Mennonite Church community and the Seward Neighborhood Group, and the SNG Environment Committee will be co-sponsoring the Neighborhood Sustainability Fair, where you and your friends and family can bring small electronics to recycle—including old cell phones, defunct electric toothbrushes, old laptops, or digital thermometers. You can also bring your bike for a tune-up, your gently used clothing for the clothing swap, and garden seeds for the seed exchange. Find out how to start a worm box, meet the worms up personal, and maybe get a worm to feed our visiting chickens. Or come to the SNG Environment Committee table to find out whether we owe you $150.00.

In case all this whets your appetite, Sisters Camelot will be serving free food from their famous bus. This is an opportunity to meet your neighbors, who are contributing to a more sustainable neighborhood, and to share your ideas with them. Try to bike or walk, as parking will be at a premium and traffic will be problematic, due to two fairs on the same day.

We welcome volunteers to help with set-up, take-down, and tabling. If you have a sustainable living skill you can share or an organization you’d like to represent, we invite you to contact us. E-mail Phil Stoltzfus, at minstaff@faithmennonite.org.
