WICHITA - Want to install solar panels? How much do your kids know about compost goop? How can hemp be used? What makes art “eco-conscious” - and how can you make (or buy) holiday jewelry and gifts from found objects?
Join us for the fourth annual EcoFest Wichita. Shop from Kansas-based vendors for locally sourced, creative, vintage, and repurposed items and art, make eco-friendly crafts you can keep, play games, eat delicious plant-based and grain-fed food, and talk to experts on everything from energy to gardening to advocating for the earth. Join the EcoFest treasure hunt and win prizes.
EcoFest Wichita will take place Sept. 23, from 10am-4pm, at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita, 7202 E. 21st St. N. Admission is $2, free for kids under 12.
Environmentally friendly vendors will offer goods, services, art works, and information to help Wichitans live in ways that are kind to the earth. Speakers include naturalists, technology experts, home and garden specialists, artists, activists, environmental educators, and much more.
Kids’ make-it/take-it crafts, face-painting, and other activities and demonstrations, education about sustainable energy options, and sales of recycled, repurposed, upcycled, and vintage jewelry, furniture, collectibles, home décor, clothing, plants, and household items are also among the festival’s offerings.
