Saturday afternoon I visited EarthWorks Expo at the Denver Merchandise Mart on 58th and I-25, expecting an event much like the Denver Green Festival. And they were quite similar, though EarthWorks Expo was smaller and in an older venue.
The talks at EarthWorks Expo were much better, however. I enjoyed learning how to garden in the winter using a cold frame (and plan to try it out again this fall, if I can manage to plant everything in the next 2 weeks), but the best speaker was Albert Bates, whom you might call an optimist-environmentalist. Yes, they do exist. His vision of the future: Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
But just in case things don’t work out the way Bates wants, at least you can go out in an eco-friendly way.
Today I turned 47 years old at 12:47 am (the witching hour). At my request, Todd got me a cake reading “Happy 45th Birthday,” because that was the last birthday I greeted with enthusiasm.
