Outside Lands- Eco Lands

Share/Bookmark




ECO LANDS - POWERED BY YOU
Eco Lands, situated in the heart of Speedway Meadow across from Wine Lands and 100% powered by alternative energy, will be the focal point of the Outside Lands' sustainability mission and environmental commitment for the 4th year in a row. Outside Lands has continually raised the bar of sustainable events and will once again challenge our attendees to help decrease the festival's carbon footprint by watching emerging artists on the solar-powered Panhandle Stage, choosing refillable water bottles over plastic ones, recycling and composting their waste, biking, carpooling or shuttling to the festival, and eating locally sourced food from our farmers' market and restaurants.
This year, Eco Lands is very excited to introduce Farm Lands, a representation of San Francisco's commitment to supporting urban agriculture and partnering with local farmers. While visiting Farm Lands, attendees will be able to visit three of San Francisco's most notable urban agriculture non-profits (Garden for the Environment, Hayes Valley Farm and Urban Sprouts) that will offer a series of workshops demonstrating how urban dwellers can grow fruits and vegetables. Next, drop by the Full Belly Farms farmers' market and sink your teeth into delicious, seasonal, organic fruit including a variety of melons, grapes, apples, and a mixed selection of nuts. Finally, enjoy eating your fruit and resting your feet while sitting on the Farm Lands' barnyard bleachers, built out of 250 straw bales.
