Be Green Lawn Care, LLC - Earth Friendly Lawn Care Solutions http://www.begreenlawncare.org/ We offer lawn, yard and tree care that focuses on sustainable practices and integrative care using organic based, natural or low toxicity products conducive to maintaining resilient turf, soil, trees and vegetation with focus on impact to environment.  There are many reasons why keeping a healthy turf, plant and tree environment can be positive improvements for air and water quality, reduction of noise, and natural wildlife and beneficial insect habitats.  Lawn care receives a bad reputation based on how it is practiced rather than why it is practiced. Earth conscious care is available and affordable.  Let us show you how!

Right now we are working to defend the EPA's clean power plan which is an initiative to lower carbon emissions by 30% by 2030. This is an important transition for Wisconsin to make away from coal power that we must import toward wind and solar power creating more sustainable work for our state. We must take action to support the Clean Power plan though signing petitions and writing letters to decision makers who have been vocal critics of the Clean Power plan.

Nickl's Nook Originals facebook.com/nicklsnookresale We re-purpose and up-cycle wood furniture. We believe in keeping usable items out of landfills and re-using old wood and other building materials to create 'new' items. Although we sell all kinds of used furniture at our brick n mortar store in Adams county, Wisconsin, we only bring our re-purposed items for sale at shows.
My husband repairs and paints old wood furniture, bringing it back to life. We may bring some smaller resale items such as old jewelry and other home decor. We would prefer to have a double booth if possible (20' x 10') as some of our pieces are rather large. I'm not sure if this is a good fit for us, but I thought I'd inquire anyway. Are there other vendors that sell items or is this mainly and informational event?
