Bucktown expos cultivate green living

Sustainable resources are highlighted in two upcoming resource fairs at ReBuilding Exchange, 2160 N. Ashland: a March 28 Green Business Resources Fair for small business and the April 15 Going Against the Grain expo for DIY enthusiasts.

The free March event from 9 am to 1 pm is aimed at business owners, but a range of vendors will appeal to consumers, from the Chicago Green Restaurant Coalition to Greenheart Shop and the car dealer Green Wheels.

The April do-it-yourself fair from noon till 5 includes a market, food trucks and workshops representing crafts from bicycle maintenance and gardening to beekeeping and chicken keeping. There's a $5 cover and $4 New Belgium beers.

The Chicago Tribune this week profiled the ReBuilding Exchange's old-growth lumber salvage for home remodelers.
