"Sustainable" is ~ finally ~ becoming THE word and Sustainable RI is THE phrase. And Rhode Island's own Apeiron Institute for Environmental Living has been at the forefront of sustainable issues since its founding in 1994. They are sponsoring the Sustainable Living Festival & Clean Energy Expo this Saturday, June 9, from 9am to 9pm in Coventry, and it is full of things to learn and do that interest The Providential Gardener, for instance (follow links and scroll down the page if necessary to see details of these workshops):
