Green Venice Expo 2.0 Returns April 9

Green Venice Expo 2.0, a day-long gathering of exhibitors, speakers and demonstrations on sustainability, returns Saturday April 9 at Mark Twain Middle School, from 12 to 5 p.m.

“Last year, over one thousand residents, activists and green-friendly individuals gathered together to offer the Venice community specific strategies and solutions for a cleaner and greener Venice,” said Rob Dew, an event organizer.

KCRW radio personality and syndicated columnist Robert Scheer will be a speaker at this year's event. The goal is to get everyone thinking about issues such as recycling, farming, planting, solar energy, community gardening, electric vehicles and bikes, home grown gardening, population growth and other issues that face Venice as supporters of a greener community.  

Organized by the Venice Neighborhood Council and sponsored by Whole Foods Venice and Surfrider Foundation, Green Venice Expo 2.0 is free to the public as well as its exhibitors, speakers and sponsors.

Zero waste will be encouraged, so all attendees are asked to bring their own eating and drinking utensils. There will be presentations and discussions on walkability/mobility, green homes and construction, ocean health, grey water, permaculture, renewable energy and a discussion on the California drought.
