Pasadena Neighborhood Green Fair

I haven't written much about happenings in the vegan community recently. Jane and I have been pretty busy over the last 3 months, and football takes up a large part of my weekends during the season.  I'm such a fan that whenever we're invited to something on a Sunday (during football season), Jane will often decline, telling the host/ess "Lane attends the church of the NFL on Sundays."   Well, football is almost done, so that means we're looking at things to fill up our weekends.

Anyway, here's the first green event of the season... If you're going to be in the Pasadena, CA area on Saturday, you may want to stop by the first annual Neighborhood Green Fair which will be held at the Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church, 301 N Orange Grove Boulevard, Pasadena, CA 91103.  The event takes place from 10am to 4pm.

It sounds like it will be a fun day.  There will be live music all day long.  There will also be movies and children's activities.  For adults, there will be displays, films, lectures, and entertainment, which will showcase innovative green products and services.  There will also be "healthy" food available.  I'm wondering if that includes vegan fare.  Since this is a "green" festival I would hope that veganism will be touched upon at the least, but I expect that the focus will more likely be local foods.

If nothing else, Jane hopes to pick up some drought tolerant plants at the fair.  They'll be selling them there, and it looks like we might be facing water restrictions again this year.


  1. It sounds fun, I wish I could go, but I have plans. Many of those “green” things just end up making me crazy, though, because they don’t even consider the tremendous benefit of veganism…it always makes me wish I had one of those t-shirts that read “real envornmentalists don’t eat meat” or something like that. It would have been worth it, though, because we’re starting to think of selling here, moving to North San Diego County, and building a green home.

  2. Hi Sue,
    That’s our biggest concern about “green” too, but you’ve probably heard us rant about it in the past. Jane was thinking of bringing some pamphlets that talk about how eating vegan is more green that eating local. I don’t know how well that would be received though.
    Wow, a green home… sounds great! Keep us posted.
