VNC Release–The Venice Neighborhood Council (www.venicenc.org) will host the 2nd annual GREEN VENICE EXPO 2.0 on Saturday, April 9th at Mark Twain Middle School from noon to 5pm.

Sponsored by WHOLE FOODS MARKET of Venice and in partnership with Surfrider Foundation, this day-long gathering on green sustainability will feature exhibitors and organizations dedicated to Mother Earth.

Strategies, speakers and demonstrations on how to keep Venice green will be the emphasis of this solutions-based conclave of green sustainability and eco preservation.

Robert Scheer, editor and chief of Thruthdig, will be the featured speaker.

“Last year over 1000 residents, activists and green-friendly individuals gathered together to offer the Venice community specific strategies and solutions for a cleaner and greener Venice,” offered Rob Dew, one of the event’s organizers.

“This year we’re proud to announce that KCRW radio personality and syndicated columnist Robert Scheer will be a speaker,” commented Dew, a local Venice community advocate and activist for several progressive causes.

The event will include governmental, business and not-for-profit exhibitors that will challenge attendees to rethink issues such as recycling, farming, planting, solar energy, community gardening, electric vehicles and bikes, home grown gardening, population growth and other issues that face Venice as supporters of a greener community.

GREEN VENICE EXPO 2.0 is a free event to the public as well as to our exhibitors, speakers and sponsors. Zero waste will be encouraged and supported and we ask all attendees to bring your own eating and drinking utensils. There will be presentations and discussions on walkability/mobility, Green Homes & construction, Ocean health, Grey Water, Permaculture, Renewable Energy and a discussion of the current California drought.
