We had a great day and a walking tour of the BURG downtown. We went to three fair trade shops and learned about why it's great to shop fair trade at 10,000 villages, Green Hummingbird, and Artisan's Hope. We saw all of the Trick or Treaters and enjoyed lunch at the fabulous Bowl of Good.
This year is off to a great start!! Destiny and Katelyn enjoyed the FOOD FEST at EMU. Destiny says, "I had a really good time. I've never been around so many different types of people. It was amazing."
And Katelyn bought a Fair Trade necklace and earrings from Colombia, and had tofu for the first time. She says, "My favorite was Femur Baladar."
