Green Festival Comes to Seattle

The Green Festival returns to the Washington Convention Center in Seattle this weekend. A joint venture of Global Exchange and Green America, this is just one of its 2010 stops - San Francisco and DC are still to come in the fall.

It's everything green and local all under one roof with 2 days packed with over 100 speakers and over 300 exhibitors. Learn about local farming, sustainable development, bike paths, and more. There's also food, music, and presentations specifically for kids. Do it yourself workshops will teach everything from bike maintenance to how to make worm bins and rain barrels.

Children get in free and adult tickets are $15. Take a bus or ride your bike and you'll get a $5 discount. Free tickets are available at Verizon locations.

I took my kids last year and it was fun and educational for all of us! I'm hoping to go again and get a peek at the new Nissan Leaf - the electric car coming this fall.
