Earth Day Draws Crowd to Summit

MT. HELIX -- Once again a committed group of people were drawn to the heights atop Mt. Helix to learn about the newest trends in ecological efforts and commerce.  Shuttles were busy early as the sun broke through an overcast morning to create the perfect day for visiting and enjoying the views.

Vendors ranged from lighting businesses to save the animal groups.  Many visitors also took a few moments to visit with the firefighters at the San Miguel Fire Station at their open house.

Earth Faire on Mt Helix was well attended this year!   La Mesa Fair Trade motto is: "Buy Local, Buy Fair".  Those who came to our booth learned about Fair Trade and will support the local La Mesa merchants that carry Fair Trade products. 

Please support La Mesa merchants by purchasing Fair Trade certified products that are not made or grown in the United States. Your purchase choices make a difference that extends beyond our local community.  Choosing a Fair Trade coffee brand at your work, makes a difference!  Shop at Costco for  Starbucks Fair Trade, Target for Archer Farms,  Albertsons, Vons, Sprouts, Trader Joes and more.  All these stores carry Fair Trade coffee & more  (Green Mountain, Paul Newman' Own, etc.) Even better - buy from you local cafes that only use Fair Trade coffee:  Cosmos Coffee Cafe, 
@Spacebar Internet Cafe, Marcella June's Coffee Lounge, Ricos Cafe, Vic's Deli and Cafe.  Check out La Mesa Bistro and Bakery & Swami' Cafe  Fair Trade expresso.    Most use local San Diego roasters!   Make a better choice....La Mesa!
