"Over the years we have watched EarthFest grow with much good environmental and justice work done and connections and relationships grown. We are deeply moved by and thankful for how the New Mexican community has come together, to grow this festival into one of the most beloved of spring events, said Robyn Seydel, member coordinator at the Co-op.

"The joyous nature of the festival with its the coming together of friends new and old coupled with the good work we can accomplish when we cooperate makes EarthFest an important part of how we positively impact lives in our community and restore and sustain our little planet."  Read more Robyn Seydel and EarthFest 2016 in this post in the Co-op website.
