Presented in collaboration with community partners, the events feature climate friendly vendors, exhibits, workshops, speakers, games and art-making for kids, poetry readings, an art show, music and more.

The 2019 Berkshire Earth Expo will take place on April 6 at the Boys & Girls Club of the Berkshires in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. This year, they are presenting the Cooler Community Challenge in conjunction with the Expo.

Our Falling into Place series spotlights the important work of  -- and fosters collaboration between -- not-for-profit organizations in our communities; allowing us all to fall into place. Falling Into Place is supported by The Seymour Fox Memorial Foundation, Providing a helping hand to turn inspiration into accomplishment. See more possibilities … see more promise… see more progress.

This morning we focus on the Radix Ecological Sustainability Center - a non-profit urban environmental education center located in the South End of Albany. On a one-acre city farm, they teach ecological literacy to area residents with demonstrations of sustainable tools and technologies including gardens, bioshelters, aquaponics, rainwater collection, composting, chickens, honeybees, and wind turbines. We are joined by co-founders Educational Director Scott Kellogg and Executive Director Stacy Pettigrew.
