We have participated in the Green Day Environmental Fair since the Sawdust Festival invited us to join its inaugural event five years ago.  Check out some of our prior year photos.

2018 Event Recap

This year, club Financial Secretary Jeanne Yale headed up our participation in Green Day.  Four club members volunteered at our table:   Jeanne, Nancy Englund, Synthia Scofield and Janet Chance.

About 20 club members donated dozens of varieties of succulent cuttings to give away, ranging from rare to common succulents.  This meant that we had scores of cuttings for community members, artists and visitors to take home and plant, and there was a constant flow of more than 200 people to our table throughout the day.

We also provided advice on how to plant and care for succulents – as well as information on other low-water-use plants that thrive in our semi-arid climate.

“Green Day is a fun event for the club to participate in; people love our table of succulents and the information that we provide about drought-tolerant plants,” said Nancy.  “We are grateful to our members for the scores of succulent cuttings that they donated to make our participation possible,” she added.
