You’re sure to find one-of-a-kind clothing, jewelry, toys, and home decor.  Perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays!

The 30 workshops and presentations will focus on green building and energy efficiency, renewable energy & fuels, and green living & gardening.  Participants can attend multiple workshops for only $10!

Be sure to visit the EarthWays Center, a division of the Missouri Botanical Gardens, when it’s open for public tours on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday of each month.  It is a sustainably renovated Victorian-era home filled with information about solar electricity, geothermal heating and cooling, native plant landscaping, super insulation, non-toxic and sustainable home maintenance products and other features.
