Wondering about solar? Need to cut down your trash? Head this Saturday for the sixth annual Sustainability Expo, where local schools, nonprofits, agencies, businesses and experts will congregate to offer a sampling of ways to make our lives and our city more sustainable.

Organized by the City of Tacoma, the Expo covers many green-living solutions such as transportation alternatives, green construction, energy conservation, waste minimization and recycling, water conservation, alternative energy, and dealing with climate change.

There’ll be local providers, a kids’ corner, an environment-themed dance performance by School of the Arts students, a schools Envirochallenger art exhibit and a miniature Tacoma Farmer’s Market, new this year.

Also available are workshops: at 10:30 a.m. sustainable landscape design, at noon solar power basics and at 1:30 p.m. growing gardens from seed.

Entry is free.
