The Sustainable Living Association - Who They Are and What They Do!
The Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Association is a Fort Collins, Colorado based non-profit organization committed to applying our vision and expertise toward a sustainable future for all.
Their mission is to educate people and communities in the Rocky Mountain region about healthy sustainable choices. They primarily accomplish this mission through their annual Sustainable Living Fair in September, the largest event of it’s kind in the Rocky Mountain region.
Their educational programs and workshops offer creative solutions and practices in a wide range of sustainable living topics such as renewable energy and alternative fuels, environmental & social responsibility, natural health, green building, organic agriculture, local economies and more. These workshops deliver valuable benefits, improving the relationship between people and the environment. They encourage an ongoing dialogue which leads to a better understanding and respect for our individual connection to the global community. They also provide individuals with the necessary tools, technology and knowledge to sustain these practices, for their personal wellbeing and the long-term benefit of our planet.

This little family is hoping to go - depends on our move. We have several booths we especially want to check out, and there are a LOT of workshops that we will try to split up between us. This is a great opportunity to find alternates to everyday products and possibly how to live green when prepping for catastrophic situations. Backwoods Home Magazine (my fav mag) is scheduled to have a booth! Check out this fair!
Welcome to the blog, Colorado Preppers. Prepping doesn't mean we think the apocolypse is coming or the earth will blow up. It simply means that we are preparing for any eventuality that may strike here in Colorado (USA) ... from swine/bird flu to blizzards to global financial collapse to loss of income and more. // Come learn with us about things like water purifying and collecting, inventory checks and more. However, we are NOT political and not affiliated with any specific religion or group. // FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE GO TO WWW.SURVIVAL-COOKING.BLOGSPOT.COM OR TO FIND OUT ABOUT MY BOOKS ON THESE AND OTHER TOPICS, GO TO WWW.VIKKI-LAWRENCE-WILLIAMS.BLOGSPOT.COM
