The Green Gazette column focuses on renewable energy living topics, this issue provides a schedule of workshops and annual green festivals.

Summer festivals always have been great places to vacation, meet new faces and hear great music. Today, lots of organizations around the country are striving to bring people together in an open-minded and fun atmosphere focused on environmental education. Many include workshops, presentations and forums on renewable energy, sustainability, organic foods and eco-spirituality. Some of the festivals, like the Oregon Country Fair and the Great Hudson River Revival continue their traditions after more than a quarter-century of celebrating.

With the summer months and warmer weather approaching, now is a great time to check out some of the green gatherings. What to bring? Musical instruments, organic and whole foods, and homemade arts and crafts. Children are welcomed and encouraged at many of the gatherings listed. But most importantly, bring a positive attitude and a desire to meet folks from all over the country who are acting locally, but thinking globally, as they party for the planet.
