EcoFest at the Arb is a day-long immersion in treading lightly on the earth and of the joyfulness that arises in our bodies and souls from sustaining her. This event continues to be an annual celebration promoting alternative energy, inspiring stewardship, and educating each other about ways to better preserve our planet. We will gather together to set intentions for the future and to honor the work each of us is doing now. Educational opportunities throughout the day will teach us new ways to live larger than life on a small footprint.
