The Living Green Expo

We participated in our first Expo the first weekend in May. We went to the Living Green Expo in St. Paul. This is the largest Green Expo in MN. It is the Expo's 12th year and it had a little over 250 exhibitors. Exhibitors came from all parts of the state. There was a little something for everyone from green architects, organic cleaners, re-used rain barrels, various environmental causes and gigantic sunflowers made from old trucks (bought one for my dad). It was a great experience to be part of such a great event. Shawn spent hours making the booth. The table was made from our timbers for the legs and one of our slabs hand cut by Shawn. The picture frames, benches and larger frame were all made from wood from the old barn. The glass for the pictures came from old windows that were left in the barn. My cousin, Linda was nice enough to paint our Green Gate sign for us. Which I must say, turned out exactly how we wanted it. Thank you Linda.
That's us having a super fun time. We met some great people, had some good conversations, saw some old friends, and had super people in the booths around us. All contributed to make the weekend very successful.
