Here's a bit about it from an e-mailed press release:
The fair will showcase the efforts 30+ organizations are making to make the Charleston community a greener place. These organizations will be providing information on their activities, while educating attendees ways they can get involved or live a greener life. In addition to this showcase there will be a recycled art contest, a biofuel documentary showing on the LEEP bio-bus, hands on activities for local school children, a Habitat for Humanity Green Shed build. Free food and drink made from ingredients produced within 100 miles of Charleston will be available at our 100 Mile Meal. These events will take place in the Cistern Gardens, the Stern Center Gardens, and George Street between St. Phillips and Comings St. The rain date is Friday, January 30th, same time and place.
But, beware of rain, if it does, the event will be held on Friday.
Oh, and we'll be set up at the fair recording for our weekly podcast, The DigiCast, and to tell you how our site can help you get in touch with Charleston's green things.
