I love experimenting with all the different foods and taste-testing new vegan and vegetarian recipes. There are over 350 exhibits that include everything from organic jeans and clothing to sustainably harvested wood. You have the opportunity to buy many of the products that you see. There is an amazing book store that offers an abundance of books to help you live the green life. You can learn about renewable energy and green technology, how to invest in your community and green businesses and how to green your home.

There are family oriented activities and a Green Kid’s Zone.
