I thought some Slow Foodies might be interested in this event:
The Canyon Land Conservation Fund just signed Daryl Hannah to speak at the upcoming Tree Hugger’s Ball & Green Expo on June 11th! We want Slow Foods to be there to gather supporters!
The 7th Annual Tree Hugger’s Ball & Green Expo June 11th in Silverado Canyon is a fun family music and eco awareness event that you don’t want to miss! Environmental expo, guest speakers, art show, healthy food, plus 7 hours of live music and dancing under a canopy of oaks and sycamores in Silverado Canyon, the gateway community between the urban jungle and the forests of OC!
Daryl Hannah is planning to arrive in her veggie converted El Camino to speak to us about Mountain Top Removal and how we need to get away from fossil fuels killing our planet and people. Daryl co-founded the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance and knows how to live “off the grid.”
Appalachian music will be preformed by Lost Hills, Lilies of the West, and Dave & Anne Hiebert of Silverado who are packing the stage with wonderful canyon musicians. Later there will be Environmental Blues by Nick Hernandez of Common Sense followed by Grateful Dead classics by Skull & Roses with dancing ’till midnight! Daryl will be speaking from 7-7:45 pm between the band sets. Transition Laguna’s Chris Prelitz will be talking about sustainability and global issues at 9:30 pm.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at www.canyonland.org.
