Demos will include: How to build your own potato tower planter: bicycle powered displays; seed-saving and “Can”-struction contest.

Also on the agenda is an Easter Egg Hunt throughout downtown Duncan and a green mall including non-profit environmental groups, artisans of sustainable crafts, and eco-minded businesses.

The main stage will feature live music and a mix of storytellers.

Also on tap is the Green Footprint Challenge hunt for the green shoe. Details and clues at Duncan Mall.
