practice what you preach
February 11, 2006 07:31PM
i think the one thing we all have in common is our respect for this planet. so im calling on the vendors and consumers to try and make this experience as low impact as possible. in the last years ive attended i have brought my own plate, cup, napkin,and utensils. this was welcomed with a possitive response from the vendors after shelling out a mountain of WASTE all day. perhaps they could offer a small discount to motivate the masses, even 5 cents represents your support. imagine keeping your beer cold in the insulated cup you brought or eating that beautiful raw vegan food out of a wooden bowl. i know this is a wacky idea, but face it were a wacky group. to anyone who agrees please speak out and let me know im not alone. if this is popular ill bring the soup and scruby.
peace, love, and light
p.s. to the producers of this show , can we please have a roped off area for the safety of the youth, so while they sleep we dont have to make a human shield to protect them.thank you!

"can we please have a roped off area for the safety of the youth, so while they sleep we dont have to make a human shield to protect them.thank you!"

What are you trying to protect them from? My guess is if your children are so young you must be with them while they sleep to protect them from something, ropes aren't gonna do much. Do like your idea of bringing your own utensils to promote the event being low-impact though. Peace

Yes Sister Jenny, The little ones are perhaps the most enthusiatic
lovers of sweet roots music. Give them a safe place to rest when
their batteries need recharge so that the parents can keep the
boogie going and keep an eagle eye on them at the same time.

Joke business aside. The best festivals IMO are the most
child-friendly festivals.

Further on the subject of child friendly festivals It was the
year 2000 I last reach SNWMFso I wonder what kind of children's
facilities the festival now offer? Some leading festivals provide
childrens play areas and childrens' music stage.

Heads-up promoters --- children's music is a giant market.
Children's roots music -- even sweeter !!!

it would be nice to have a roped area for sleepy heads, because they dont always want to go back to the tent alone, and they like to fall asleep to the music, but yes, sometimes even a village cant protect them from a wandering drunk!
