Even though our president seemingly has no interest in sustainability for the human race, we’re lucky here in Richmond there are smarter folks with some foresight. On Saturday, Nov. 4, Gallery5 will become a hub for all things sustainable with the RVA 50 Mile Fest from noon to 5 p.m. Learn about why food miles matter, how to create backyard gardens, home energy savings tips and composting tips. Held by the Great Big Everything and Gallery5, partners include CompostRVA, Belle Isle Moonshine, Groundwork RVA, Freakin’ Rican food truck and Nate’s Bagels. Ask not what your failed system can do for you, but what you can do for your failed system. Free. gallery5arts.org.
