INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS AND LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS TEAM UP TO “TURN THE TIDE”
Bike, ride or carpool to the second annual Green Long Beach! Festival showcasing the latest green practices at innovative workshops, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., on May 22.
The free event will include over two dozen local entertainers, organizations and government entities that make up the “green” community in Long Beach and surrounding areas. These groups are active participants in environmental stewardship and are excited to share their practices with the public. This year’s street festival will be held in the East Village Arts District
on 3rd St. and Long Beach Blvd.
in Long Beach. The “Turn the Tide” theme reflects the inevitable change that occurs when people celebrate, educate and empower others to be green.
“This festival is created by a diverse group of people all sharing their limited resources to create something bigger themselves,” said Elliot Gonzalez, Green Long Beach! Festival coordinator. “If people were aware of local resources that are available, we could support the development of these resources.”
Between innovative workshops, booths and entertainment, festival attendees will also be able to learn about alternative energy and local green organizations such as Long Beach Organic and Rossmoor Pastries. Workshop topics will include how to qualify for green jobs and creating energy efficient homes. Children workshops will also be set up to teach kids about sustainability.
“Now is the time when all members of the community can come together to contribute to the great green city we want to live in,” said Gonzalez.
