Eco Conference at Suzuki School

Maybe it's a good thing there's rain on the forecast this weekend.  Instead of heading out to the farm on Saturday morning to put seedlings in the ground, WECSA enthusiasts will be able to attend the Eco Conference at Dr. David Suzuki Public School, the country's only platinum LEED rated school.

The conference will educate attendees about the toxins found in makeup and household cleaning products, and what to do about it to ensure we raise our families safely.  Attendees will go home with goody-bags of samples and will be eligible for door-prizes throughout the day, making this a thoroughly worthwhile event for the modest $5 admission fee.

There will be local vendors selling their products, including ShopEco, Sartaj Flour and Faerhaven Soaps, as well as a number of information booths and a bevy of local artists selling environment-inspired art as well as goods imaginatively made from repurposed materials.  A selection of food options will be available, made with locally grown ingredients, many of which were grown or produced on the WECSA farm.

The doors open to the public at 9am, and the school is situated at 6320 Raymond Avenue, in Riverside.
