The Whole Earth Festival held at UC Davis is turning 45. This festival originated out of the back to nature movement of the 1970's. It now encompasses the environmental equation of how long our resources will last and how to improve the daily lives of those around the globe.
It events use the basic ideology of using the resources of the natural world, from home made crafts and items to eat to fabrics in clothing and art or crafts as well as iron made items for the garden.
There will be exhibits on sustaining the earth for those still able to live outside the normal urban area of homes and apartments. There are information booths for those who want to know how to live in rural areas or survive a natural disaster.
There will be plenty of music and dancing as well as good times in the areas of food to eat and the enjoyment of a grassy lawn to sit upon while still living in the modern world.
Come one and all to enjoy the 45 years of those who care about those around them and the future of the earth itself. This is an event not to be missed by those who still wonder who the mother earth was to the ancients or who will be the mother figure to generations to come.
