San Francisco Green Festival

Would be real nice for us tradespeople if there wasn't so many festivals, conferences, meetings, etc. etc. etc., and allot more front end investing and actual projects going on. Much better for the Country and Especially this Economy as well. But I guess the "your people meet mine." or "lets do lunch." crowd have to set everything up first. Ahhh, to be back in the old days, not so far past!

Hosts over 34,000 participants, boosts green economy, engages community

The nation's premier sustainability event stimulated the green economy by giving back $24,000 to more than 300 sustainable businesses and engaged community members with local non profit organizations to create year-round community involvement.
