Earth Day 2005 Fair and FreeCycle Free-for-All on April 17th in Philadelphia
APRIL 17, 2005
1pm – 5pm
An invitation to join us for Philly’s own Earth Day 2005 Fair & FreeCycle Free-for-All!
A Time to Gather and Celebrate the Environmental & Sustainability Movements at the Wissahickon Charter School (a new, eco-focused school) 4700 Wissahickon Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19144. Outdoor & indoor locations and demonstration areas with ability to set up all indoors in case of inclement weather. Accessible by the XH bus line.

Sustaining Creation: the Northwest Interfaith Movement Environmental Network
Wissahickon Charter School
MAGNet: Mt. Airy Greening Network; the same folks that brought you

A major draw is expected to be the Free-for-All, a materials exchange sponsored by PhillyFreecycle & the students at Wissahickon Charter School, where folks will be encouraged to drop-off reusable items during the preceding week, all of which will be offered free-for-the-taking during the event.

We hope to host recycling opportunities and composting training.

We seek participants to offer outreach and education, workshops and demonstrations.

We particularly welcome those who can offer kid-friendly, hands-on activities.

We seek live entertainment (for free or very low fee!), relevant workshops, talks, and other interactive, hands-on activities.

A nominal fee ($15 for an organization, $35 for a business) will provide table spaces for your representatives of sustainable practices, environmental advocacy, education and outreach organizations, local food producers and growers, especially CSAs. Tables will be 6 to 8 feet. Please indicate if you’ll have electricity or other infrastructure needs.
