September 24, 2016 marked the 12th annual Foss Creek Cleanup event! 90 volunteers from the community participated and removed 20 cubic yards of garbage from the creek. Most prevalent trash item: cigarette butts. Yuck!! Also, 4 tractor tires, a bicycle, a desk, a table, wagon, signage, a computer, and a whole bunch of other junk. Healdsburg Community Church and the Cub Scouts Pack 21 will share the Crud Cup trophy this year as both groups blew us away with their positive attitudes and garbage hauls.
In addition to the Cleanup, we held our very first SmartLiving Healdsburg Fair. We had 12 local and community vendors and groups join us to talk about renewable energy, landscaping, energy and water efficiency, electric vehicles, healthy eating, gardening, and more!
We had a great time and can’t wait to do it again next year!
