Wanna help compost Mountain Fair?

Dear Editor:

The 41st annual Carbondale Mountain Fair, July 27 to 29, once again will be a festival pacesetter by reducing its footprint with composting, recycling and other zero-waste practices. In 2011, the Green Team led 100-plus volunteers like you in diverting 90 percent of all fair waste from the landfill. Compost is taken to a “hot” commercial facility to break down and be used once again as soil in our valley.

The Carbondale Council the Arts and Humanities has continued the legacy of running Mountain Fair solely by volunteers with endless creativity, and it all comes together nicely in Sopris Park. But, we need your help to make it shine! You do not need any previous experience – we will tell you everything you need to know. Four hours of volunteerism will get you a raffle ticket for a New Belgium cruiser bike to be given away, a locally designed volunteer shirt, a warm, fuzzy community feeling and a fist bump. You can sign up three ways:

1) Call CCAH at 970-963-1680 with your shifts.

2) Go to http://www.carbondalearts.com/

mountain-fair/mountain-fair-2012 and email your shifts at the bottom of the page.

3) Look for the big red volunteer book at town events, and sign up in person. Special arrangements can be made for business sponsors. Stop by the Green Team tent during the fair to chat more about our sustainability efforts, and we are always up for suggestions. Green Team is all of us.
