EcoFest this Saturday in Kingston 11-3:00


Woohoooo for EcoFest! This is an event all outdoor-nature-sustainability-fun lovers on or around the Kitsap Peninsula should check out. Especially when the weather forecast is this:




The 15th annual EcoFest is this Saturday, May 31 from 11 am – 3 pm at the wonderful Stillwater’s Environmental Education Center in Kingston (26059 Barber Cutoff Road, Kingston 98346).

There will be booths all ages will love, with everything from Backyard Farm Animals to the Institute for Responsible Technology. Stillwaters will have native plants for sale at great prices (LOVE THEM!), as well as a kids open mic and other activities on their stage. There are food booths and fun booths and information booths…so much fun!!

“Stillwaters Environmental Center is dedicated to informing and empowering our community to make ecologically responsible decisions. We assist people to achieve sustainability of Earth’s resources  – including both humans and our natural environment.  We use our Carpenter Creek watershed  to teach  about the many interactions  between the plants, animals and humans that inhabit any ecosystem. We foster action  by being a model of sustainability. We teach citizens practical, everyday changes  to improve the ecosystems in which they live.”

Need I say more? I absolutely love this organization and the two ladies who founded it are local heroes for me – Joleen Palmer and Naomi Maasburg. I’ll share more about their amazing efforts another time, but for now, know that you should pack up and get on over to their wonderful EcoFest event!

Happy Festivaling,
