Sustainable Tacoma Pierce will be part of this Fair! Not sure of the details of where our display will be. I think we'll be sharing with other local Sustainable and Self-Reliant communities. We will also be part of the volunteer corps. Come check us out. I'll keep you posted as we get more details.
