Saturday's Green Living Festival has new venue

The seventh annual Green Living Festival has a new venue.

The sustainable-living event is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch on Genoa Lane.

“The new venue is a beautiful place that allowed us to plan some outdoor programs we couldn’t do at the old venue, and to reduce our exhibitor fees,” board member Vicki Bates said in a news release.

One track of programs will be held outdoors: a guided hike of the ranch by the Carson Valley Trails Association, a hoop house, low tunnel building demonstrations, a LEED building and constructed wetlands tour, and a Monarch butterfly search.

Another track will be held in the Whit Hall Interpretive Center: making clean, safe household products, incorporating a fishery (aquaculture) into your backyard gardening, biofuels, improving plant growth and quality, conservation easements and the kickoff to a yearlong 20 percent energy challenge.

Admission to the event and workshops is free. The event is hosted by the Sustainable Living & Renewable Energy Roundup and sponsored by NV Energy, Nature Conservancy, Douglas Disposal, Carson Valley Inn and Whole Foods.
