Spring Festival Set
Our 4th annual Festival, scheduled for April
26th is a Spring Festival with a slightly different
theme. It will be held at the site of a real operating
eco village focused on “Self Reliance” and “Resiliency.”
Sustainability in this context is about re-localization,
re-skilling and planning for what Tucson will
need to thrive in a world that doesn’t depend
on globalization and consumerism. It is about
being practical in the face of a rapidly changing
political, economic, and global world.
Plans in process for our first Spring Festival
Tentative plans are in the works for a hands-on
dig-in-the-dirt sustainability exposition. SIte
selection is being discussed with a tentative
site in Avra Valley.
Great Turnout at the Fall Festival:
Everyone loved the great weather, awesome music,
speakers (including Mayor Rothschild), electric
vehicles. GMO Free food, and the quality of the
vendors representing 50 green businesses or organizations.
It looks like we doubled the visitor count from
the 2012 Festival. It took a year of preparation,
and many meetings of our committees to get this
to such a success level. Next year will be even
better with your help.
The Tucson Sustainable
Festival is a family event that
brings people together around a common vision
and motivates action to build a bright sustainable
future in our beautiful desert southwest.
Come enjoy a day of fun, food, education,
and community for the whole family. This
year, 2014, we will have both a Spring and
a Fall Festival with different themes and
locations. The Spring Self Reliance &
Resiliency Festival will be outdoors with
real hands-on DIY projects, workshops, and
demonstrations from the experts. This is
not a Prepper or Survival Festival though
many of the same subjects are being demonstrated.
This is about re-skilling, re-localization,
and learning from the past while applying
technology and today’s knowledge to update
skills that we now need more than ever for
a rapidly changing and unpredictable world.
What will Tucson look like 10- 20- or even
50 years in the future… There may not be
a future if we don’t start planning it right
here and right now in a practical and sustainable
