Sustainable Saratoga and Skidmore College invite you to participate in the second annual Saratoga Sustainability Fair to be held on April 4, 2020 at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.
The mission of the sustainability fair is to support the three interconnected pillars of sustainability— environmental responsibility, social equity, economic development—by connecting people to community resources and organizations that contribute to making our community a more sustainable place to live for current and future generations.
The fair will bring exhibitors, presenters, and the community together to advocate for and improve awareness about sustainability activities and opportunities. The fair will include tours focusing on Skidmore’s sustainability efforts, exhibitor booths, workshop presentations, a keynote speaker, and more.

Alberta’s Scott Cook (www.scottcook.net) has been living out of a van or a backpack for a dozen years now, touring almost incessantly across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere, and distilling his experiences into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. His fourth independent release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track “Pass It Along” won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him “one of Canada’s most inspiring and imaginative storytellers”. His sixth studio album Further Down the Line earned a second CFMA nomination (English Songwriter of the Year), and comes packaged in a 132-page book containing a look back, in words and pictures, on a decade of full-time travel. He’s currently touring in support of his seventh collection, Tangle Of Souls, which comes in a hardcover book addressing even deeper questions, both personal and political. Cook is one of the hardest-working DIY troubadours on the road today, averaging over 150 shows and a dozen festivals every year since 2007. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
“Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on.” -David Francey, 3x Juno-winning Canadian songwriter
“As good a modern folkie as we have these days. A voice perfect for the genre. An understanding beyond the norm.” -No Depression
“He sings his heart and soul, and in doing so lets light flood into your own… Truly one of Woody Guthrie’s children.” -RnR Magazine
