Don’t miss the 3rd annual LOVE OUR EARTH FESTIVAL, Saturday, April 13, from 10 am to 2 pm at Bloomhouse, a vibrant community-gathering spot at 2555 Pulgas Ave in East Palo Alto. Admission is free. We’ll learn how to Go Electric to Build Healthy and Resilient Communities, from people who know and who’ve done it. Then each of us can do our part to create:

  • Safer and healthier homes
  • A cleaner atmosphere that mitigates climate change and extreme weather disasters
  • A livable and equitable future for all Peninsula residents
  • Restored ecosystems that support biodiversity

Dozens of expert exhibitors are eager to talk to you and answer all of your questions, from booths in different zones that comprise the LOVE OUR EARTH FESTIVAL:

Home Electrification Showcaseexperts in why and how to choose induction stoves and cooktops, heat pump water and home heaters, electric clothes dryers, solar panels and battery storage. Chat with homeowners who’ve already made the switch to electric home appliances and turned off that nasty methane gas.

Clean Vehicle Expo, including new and used EVs, electric motorcycles, e-bikes and manual bikes. Sit test EVs, test ride bikes and ask detailed questions about performance and price.

Resilient Community Groups: talk to people who can help you prepare for extreme weather events and work with your community to implement solutions to climate change

Plant-Based Market, where you can taste delicious, nutritious, plant-based foods and drinks that may be new to you

Engaging Activities for Families, Kids and Folks of all ages: get up-close and personal with live reptiles, sit in on storytimes, craft something beautiful to take home, share what caring for the planet means to you
