I'm planning on attending the Green Festival this weekend, which just so happens to be coming to Seattle this year. It is the nation's largest green living event and is a two-day deal that features tons of great speakers (more than 125 renowned authors, leaders and educators), how-to workshops as well as more than 300 eco-friendly businesses.
I'll be meeting up with John de Graaf, author of Affluenza and filmmaker extraordinaire, on Saturday. On Sunday, I'm planning on going to the viewing of King Corn, which is followed by discussion with the filmmakers and local experts on food and agriculture.
The hard part will be planning what else I want to go to. Beyond that, the rest of the time I'll be drooling over representatives from supercool vendors and magazines. Did I mention that I get in free?
So, expect a whirlwind of reporting from me next week on the array of things I explore.
Anyone else planning on coming? If you are going to be there, let us all know which presentations you will be attending in case people want to meet up and be all friendly like. I'll be the one carrying around a Crunchy Chicken tote bag. If I can find the damn thing.
The first person who emails me after 12:00 p.m. PST Wednesday 4/9/08 gets a free admission ticket to the Seattle Green Fest.
