Join us for the opening ceremony of the 2nd Annual Eco Garden Expo, Saturday, May 2nd at 9am with Master of Ceremony, Greg O’Brien, a voice over artist and former announcer for ESPN.  A Los Rios Park blessing will be given by the Acjachemen Nation, followed by our first presenter, former California Secretary of Food & Agriculture, AG Kawamura, speaking on urban gardening during this current drought. Check out the schedule below for a full lineup of presenters and topics promoting conservation, sustainability, urban farming, solar, worm composts, designing with edibles and California natives.

Creek Side Stage

Listen to the experts on a variety of garden and environmental talks. Take away numerous ideas and healthy tips while saving you money and precious resources in your home and business.
