Green Roots Festival

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the first annual Green Roots Festival in Jamaica Plain on Sunday June 8th. We had a great time educating everyone about Birdhead's practices and Michael and Lauren's venture, Chase the Rising Sun. The event, organized by Bikes Not Bombs, featured many exhibits, live music, food, speakers, and workshops to promote sustainable living and address environmental issues.

Some notable groups that were there:

ExCL (Extras for Creative Learning) is a clearinghouse that recovers tons of materials from being burned or buried and redistributes it for creative, education use with children.

The Food Project creates fertile g
round for new ideas about youth and adults partnering to create social change through sustainable agriculture.

Izzit Green is an online social network of green-conscious individuals who want to make a difference in their community through an exchange of ideas, opinions, and information.

Birdhead made a great impact with locally made shirts and bags printed with soy based inks. Our social message to change the world was well received, along with our yummy organic, vegan Birdhead cookies! Thanks Bikes Not Bombs, we look forward to next year!
