Greenfest returned to DC this past weekend in its 7th year and was bigger and better than ever. Imagine a convention hall full of progressive vendors, media outlets, and nonprofits, 150 speakers and workshops, all suffused with post-election euphoria – nice energy!
And there were just enough gardening-related talks and workshops to satisfy. Especially Joe Lamp'l's talk about "Greener Gardening," a big hit with the crowd. This guy's passionate! Local vericomposter Lindsay Paige Savoie showed off her condo-sized operation. It was also a big hit, and you'll soon be seeing my very own attempt to follow her recommendations.
Greenfest is coming soon to San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle or Denver, and if you're near any of those cities, check it out!
