The Tompkins County team participated in the annual wacky and wonderful Ithaca Festival again this year. People come from near and far to enjoy this unique event. The festival kicks off with parade on Friday evening and then a street fair on Saturday and Sunday with music, food, vendors, tabling and lots of family activities.
At our table, we featured an eco dollhouse activity for children who had to find all the green features of the dollhouse including solar panels, a geothermal heat pump, clothing hanging on the line and a compost bin. Adults were asked to sign our postcard to the City of Ithaca Planning Board asking them not to approve the use of fracked gas from the Dominion pipeline to heat Cornell's new North Campus Dorm proposal. It was so much fun to be a part of the festival again this year and we got a lot of new names for our mailing list.
