Tierralegre, A.C. (www.tierralegre.org) is hosting the first Green Technology and Sustainability Fair all day this Friday, December 5 in La Manzanilla. The program of activities can be viewed below, and are also attached in this message.
This inaugural event to showcase ecological education, environmental stewardship and community sustainability will combine with the annual fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds to maintain the YES (Youth Ecology and Sustainability) Initiative and to build a multi-use outdoor classroom at the Youth Ecology Center in La Manzanilla this coming year.
Thus a space will exist at the Center where local and visiting teachers and students can learn, exchange research and ideas, provide service and innovation through collaboration in an inspiring, comfortable and green environment. The completion of this structure will ensure that the Center continues to provide an oasis for local community sustainability well into the future…
