Tiny Dancer

Sustainafest Mission: To educate and engage people of all ages and interests to take action in their everyday lives to strengthen our community, improve our environment, and support our local economy.  [And have good time doing it!]

You and all of family and friends are invited to be a part of this year’s event. SustainaFest is a wonderful Maryland non-profit that is bringing sustainability education and action into schools in our area and teaching the general public about living more sustainably.  Their Student Sustainability Lab program, whose programming includes having middle school students build sustainable tiny houses, has garnered lots of attention of late and is quickly expanding into both public and private schools.

This year’s festival will take place on September 12th at Indian Creek School in Crownsville, MD. The day will feature great musicians, local food and drink, sustainability-themed exhibitors and vendors, student-built tiny houses, world-class independent films from Telluride Mountainfilm, and much more.  This is the 3rd year of the festival and it just keeps getting better; it’s not to be missed.

The attached flyer provides more information.  Tickets can be purchased here. Early bird pricing ends on Aug. 31st so everyone should move quickly to ensure a ticket and get the best price!
