TownGreen 2025, a program of the Gloucester Meeting House Foundation, presents its second Cape Ann Sustainability Fair on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at O’Maley Innovation Middle School, located at 32 Cherry Street in Gloucester, MA, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

This year, there will be an added focus on other elements of sustainable living on Cape Ann. The day will consist of interactive teaching, learning, and collaborating, and include speakers who will address clean energy technology, carbon neutrality, locally relevant impacts of climate change, and personal carbon footprint reduction. There will be exhibits from local and regional leaders from both the nonprofit and profit sectors.

Demonstrations on clean energy, home energy efficiency, personal carbon footprint reduction, and strategies for carbon sequestration. Stations for personal carbon footprint calculation will be provided, in addition to different sections for the different types of sustainability: Electric Vehicles, Sustainable Foods (Cape Ann Farmer’s Market will be there), Renewable Electricity, Home Efficiency and Reuse/Recycle.

The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market will be on site from 10 AM to 2 PM. Bring your broken bicycles to be repaired by volunteers from the Cape Ann Timebank and your unwanted bikes to be donated for refurbishing by Bikes not Bombs. Enjoy live music, speakers addressing clean energy technology, carbon neutrality, locally relevant impacts of climate change, and personal carbon footprint reduction and have enlightening conversations with the expert youth ambassadors about climate change

The youth ambassadors will consist of middle school students, with two to three of them assigned to each section. There will also be a table with high schoolers who will discuss what they are learning in relation to the rising sea levels.

There will be free admission and parking, opportunities to recycle old bikes or bring your bike in to be fixed, and test drive an electric car. Food, drinks, activities, music, door prizes will be provided.

Organizers encourage all to join.
