Seward Neighborhood Sustainability Fair

Longfellow folks, there’s going to be a sustainability fair just down the street on March 17, from 1 to 5 pm at Faith Mennonite Church (across from Seward Montessori) at 2720 East 22nd St.

Organizers say the fair will provide opportunities to learn from neighbors about what they are doing to use less of the earth’s resources. Join neighbors and local groups in activities such as:

  • A clothing exchange (bring clothes to swap)
  • Small electronics exchange (bring old cell phones, P4 computer processors, hard drives, DVD drives (no CRTs)
  • Seed swap
  • Bike tune-up
  • Meet a local urban farmer, learn more about Seward Coop is up to.
  • “We want to create an event which is fun and hopeful, while providing opportunities for learning, networking, and increasing the
    sustainability of our daily lives. Please join us!” If you have questions or comments, please contact Phil Stoltzfus at Faith Mennonite Church, at 612-375-9483.

    About thinkofitasanadventure

    We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
