Howdy! Welcome to our blog.
Whoever you are you’re part of our community, and part of EcoFairfield. Why? Because to us Sustainability is about inclusiveness–about the interconnected world. We believe that when the relationships among us (people) and our environments are healthy, mutually beneficial, and strong, we will all enjoy greater happiness, and resilience in every way: ecologically, economically, psychologically, physically, culturally.
EcoFairfield grew out of an annual college EcoFair sustainability conference into the beginnings of a movement to serve, connect, and inspire the citizens of Fairfield, Iowa. Past EcoFairs highlighted specific aspects of sustainability and aimed to bring sustainability celebrities to Fairfield. Yet in the process of finding local experts for additional workshops, we realized there is a wealth of knowledge right here in Fairfield.
This year our focus is on sharing the knowledge of local experts, the excellence of local vendors and businesses, and local projects that anyone can participate in throughout the year. EcoFairfield is more than just an Earth Day weekend conference. April 20-22nd is an opportunity for us to join together in hands on community service, to learn and celebrate, to build relationships with local and regional mentors, to delight at what is possible during the EcoJam Fashion show, to connect with green jobs, strengthen local economy and volunteerism, and to plug-in to city-wide energy efficiency efforts to save on personal utility bills.
EcoFairfield is a growing collaboration of the city of Fairfield, Fairfield Public Library, Iowa State Extension, Fairfield Volunteer Center, Maharishi University of Management, MyLocal Cooperative, the Dharma Foundation, the Bonnell Building Project, and Fairfield Rotaract. All community members and organizations are invited to participate and join the organizing team. We look forward to participating in the Alliant Energy Hometown Rewards Program launch also taking place Earth Day Weekend.
So what is EcoFairfield, anyway?
It depends. What do you want it to be?
Serve. Connect. Inspire.
Because our locals are awesome!
