The Charlotte Clean and Green Festival doesn't deny its potential to turn ordinary citizens into environmentally friendly fighting machines. You'll hear fascinating lectures and participate in hands-on workshops and exhibits, offering up knowledge on everything from solar panels to organic farming.
There's no way you'll get out without having learned something new or found a new eco-purpose. Need more incentive? A number of food vendors, including local farm-to-table eatery Harvest Moon Grille, will be there. Free admission. May 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Little Sugar Creek Greenway, Kings Drive and 4th Street.
