We encourage all Meetup members to come out and enjoy the Washington DC Green Festival! The Green Festival seeks to unite green enterprises, social and environmental groups, and thousands of community members (they expect over 30,000 people) in a lively exchange of ideas, commerce, and movement building. We expect all food vendors to feature food that is fully vegetarian and sustainable, while encouraging them to be vegan.
VSDC will have an informational booth at this outstanding 2-day event. It will be held at the Washington DC Convention Center at 801 Mount Vernon Place in NW DC (Mt Vernon Square Metro Station on the green/yellow lines) in Exhibit Hall D&E.
[UPDATE: We're all set with volunteers now. THANKS all!]
PLEASE help us staff the VSDC table for a 2 hour timeslot on Sunday (the hours are 11 am to 6 pm). As a small token of our appreciation, you can receive free admission to the event. Please email [masked] ASAP (and preferably before Mon Oct 5th by 5 pm) and provide your name, email, phone number, and preferable timing. Someone will contact you promptly to confirm. THANK YOU.
