[Charles] Tomorrow we will be moving the Market for one day up to support an amazing one of a kind school in our community. (We'll be back open on Sunday.) EcoFest is a festival that brings together the green community in Tampa with vendors, music, and information at the Learning Gate School. The Learning Gate Community School is an environmentally focused charter school in Lutz just north of Tampa - right near the intersection of I-275 and Nebraska Avenue. On Saturday the school will be open for people to walk through and see some of the amazing work that has gone into making the school a model of sustainable architecture. There are water harvesting systems, sustainable materials, cutting edge energy saving features, and all of that will be on display with some 40 or so classroom presentations set up for visitors.

In addition to visiting the school to see green technology in action, there will also be a festival called EcoFest that has attracted live music, vendors, produce, and environmental organizations. This will be a lot of fun for the whole family with activities for the kids and parents alike. This is an interesting educational opportunity for those interested in making our world better for the next generation. Come see how an alternative to our current education system can shape the environmental leaders of our next generation.
