The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $15, you get weekend passes for two (a $30 value) to the Sustainable Living Fair at Legacy Park in Fort Collins on Saturday, September 17, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, September 18, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Hosted by the Sustainable Living Association, the 12th annual Sustainable Living Fair entertains and educates attendees with interactive solution-based exhibits, workshops, local food and drinks, and acclaimed keynote speakers. Earth-centered subject matter provides relevant material for all ages, with wholesome undertones weaving through topics such as renewable energy, environmental responsibility, and the practicality of using old baseball gloves as avant-garde birdhouses. To glean hands-on experience, guests can partake in 75 workshops featuring an eclectic variety of themes, from constructing wind-energy turbines to applying clay finishes to homes. More than 250 exhibitors offer insight into a multitude of globe-friendly products and services, and live music, entertainment, and morning yoga throughout the weekend fosters the green gala's energetic and sociable atmosphere. Though a bio-shuttle service will supply transportation to and from the event, fair-goers are encouraged to utilize other modes of ozone-preserving transit, such as bicycles and quantum leaping.
