Green Baby Expo

Last weekend I helped DeAnna run a Community Seeds booth at the Green Baby Expo in Chico. This expo was full of all kinds of great booths with vendors that are eco-friendly and targeted at families with young kids. Inside the main building we had a large Community Seeds booth with our t-shirts for sale, displays of our magazine pages, lots of great raffle prizes and our magazine projected from a laptop onto a screen. Outside, I ran a booth displaying several of our Evergreen 6 solar ovens, a solar paper craft and U.V. reactive nail polish that changes colors in the sun. Five students from Evergreen joined me and helped me run the booth. They did the crafts with the kids, cooked cinnamon twists in the ovens and invited people into our booth while I answered questions and told visitors about Community Seeds. It was a blast! It was so, so, so hot- I was totally sweaty & had heat stroke by the end of the day, but it was worth it! My students were so wonderful, it was fun hanging out with them and they helped so much, I couldn't have done it without them!
