September 6, 2013 (La Mesa) – The City of La Mesa is holding its sixth annual “Sustain La Mesa” Environmental Festival September 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Harry Griffen Park, 9550 Milden Street, La Mesa.  The free event is presented by the La Mesa Environmental Sustainability Commission and will feature hydroponics, solar cooking, composting, electric vehicles, kid’s crafts and more.

This year’s theme is “Bringing Green to the Table”.  The theme highlights that the words “La Mesa” translates into “The Table” in Spanish. Attendees can explore the interactive booths and exhibits, including topics such as energy and transportation, horticulture and habitat, water, recycling, and a kid’s zone.  Innovative technologies, including the newest electric cars and the latest in sustainable building materials will be on display.  An EDCO recycling zone for hard to recycle materials will be available.

The winners of the “Our Planet, Our Home” K-12 Environmental Literacy & Art Contest will be announced and their entries will be displayed at the festival.
