Family oriented events aimed at teaching sustainability and natural health will be the highlight of the Sustainable Living Fair in Fort Collins, Colo.

For the last decade, the Sustainable Living Association, of Fort Collins, Colo., has been at the forefront of the sustainable living and lifestyle movement. Twelve years ago, the idea for the Sustainable Living Fair came into fruition, stemming from the non-profit organization’s desire to educate the public about making better choices for themselves, as well as the earth.

September 17 and 18 marks the 12th Annual Sustainable Living Fair, taking place at Legacy Park in Fort Collins, Colo. With past fairs attracting more than 10,000 attendees from across the county, the weekend offers solution-based, interactive, family oriented events, specifically designed to educate people of all ages about sustainable living practices, renewable energy, green building, natural health, and organic and local agriculture.

Fair Director Ray Aberle is confident that the array of workshops and events will pique the interest of everyone who attends. “I think one of the core elements we combine is a sense of rural tradition and urban revival: resourcefulness, creativity, entrepreneurialism, community and a sense of personal empowerment,” Aberle says. “The Fair has something for everyone, whether you have been involved in sustainable living for decades or simply have a casual interest.”

The Sustainable Living Fair will be powered completely on alternative energy. The main stage, workshops and vendors will operate on biodiesel-powered generators and solar trailers.

For the price of admission, the Sustainable Living Fair offers a bountiful array of activities, sure to appease anyone who utilizes the earth’s natural resources: a diverse set of acclaimed speakers; 250 exhibitors and vendors; 75 workshops with hands-on demonstrations; a Family Planet area featuring educational programs, a Natural Health and Healing Zone; local food; live entertainment; and a wine, mead and beer garden.
