The organization known as Sustainable Living and Renewable Energy Roundup (SLRE) is an educational non-profit that holds several educational events throughout the year including a Green Living Fest every September.
Our mission is to promote sustainable practices, renewable energy use, and environmental responsibility in the way we work, play, and live.
SLRE was started in late 2006 by a group of people who wanted to promote sustainable living. Now in our seventh year, we are still a volunteer-run, educational non-profit working to inform and empower people in order to build a more sustainable community. Every year, we sponsor a green living festival in the Carson Valley, NV to share information about gardening, alternative energy, eating healthy and living better. We enjoy bringing local businesses, organizations and community members together to learn from each other.
We are a non-profit organization and greatly appreciate the support we get from the community and businesses in supporting our goals. If you would like to donate to help us make our festival even better, please click on the button below. Thank You!
The event includes informational workshops, exhibits and an interactive Discovery Center with fun activities for kids - making smoothies with the bike blender, baking in solar ovens, activities by Master Gardeners and the Great Basin Outdoor School. The event is free to the public. We hope you will join us! The workshop schedule is available on ourFest Info - Workshops page. If you would like to help with the planning of the event, go to the volunteer page.
