Working Toward Sustainability

Fifteen Arrowhead RSVP volunteers contributed nearly 100 hours of service to assist the Iron Range Partnership for Sustainability in holding the second annual Iron Range Earth Fest on April 17, 2010 in Mtn. Iron, Minnesota. Earth Fest is a celebration of local traditions and practical resources for sustainable living in our homes, communities, economy and environment. Visitors toured eighty-one exhibits representing renewable energy, natural foods, wellness, soil and water conservation, earth-friendly products and recreational activities. Additionally workshops held throughout the day covered topics from Making a Rain Barrel to Building a Green Home.
