Fourth Annual Celebrate Sustainability Event – FREE September 29, 2012
The Institute of Ecolonomics (IOE) and Mountain Sky Group (MSG) announce the Fourth Annual Celebrate Sustainability Event to be held again on Saturday, September 29, 2012, at Mountain Sky Ranch, near Carter Lake. This one day free event will feature live music with Davey and the Blu Dog (YEAH!), discussions, displays, activities and entertainment related to sustainable living and agriculture. This year we will have more vendors and even FOOD for sale!
Mountain Sky Ranch which is a commercial sustainable agriculture ranch and agritourism, demonstration, education and research campus will host this exciting event for the third time. Dr. Dorband, President of IOE states, ” Third Annual Celebrate Sustainability Event last fall was so much fun that we knew we wanted to just make it better this year. We met so many environmentally conscious people who did not know what we did and we want to continue to show the community how to be more earth friendly.”
Celebrate Sustainability is a family oriented event running from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM which is free and open to the public. Throughout the day there will be discussions, demonstrations and activities showcasing small acreage farming for anyone, sustainable livestock, aquaponics for home food production, and tips for sustainable living.
This exciting event is held in conjunction with National Alpaca Farm Days and we will be showcasing one of Colorado’s largest herds of elite breeding alpacas, including over twenty babies (cria) that are so cute and fun to watch. Come and see the finest alpacas in the Rocky Mountain region as well as our sustainable farming practices.
Deb Dorband, Mountain Sky Ranch owner says, “Come for an hour or spend the day. There are many things to do. Just hang out and listen to Davey and the Blu Dog.”
