Summer Solstice Celebration at Camber @ Camber

Summer Solstice Celebration at Camber @ Camber

Camber is throwing a Summer Solstice celebration at their downtown all day cafe. They’re partnering with Oatly to serve up iced oat milk lattes for $1 all day. Camber’s iced lattes are made with their caramel-forward Big Joy espresso. They love the reduced environmental impact of oat milk. Fun fact: growing oats requires less that 1/6 the amount of water of growing almonds!

To top things off, Oatly is vegan, gluten free, nut free, soy free, and GMO free. And on Friday, June 21st, it’ll nearly be free-free 🙂

NW Green Home Tour @ Whatcom County

Join us for the 17th annual Northwest Green Home Tour from 10am-5PM June 22—the longest running, most comprehensive green home tour north of Seattle! This year, we’ve teamed up with the experts to provide a suite of homes that demonstrate the latest in environmental building solutions while embodying our Pacific Northwest aesthetic. Step inside some of Whatcom County’s most innovative and sustainable new and remodeled houses and meet the people who created and envisioned them. Spend time talking to experts at each stop about green features and cutting-edge technology. Whether you’re interested in retrofitting a classic, historic home with the best in today’s energy efficiency standards, or looking to maximize an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to offset your global climate change footprint—the tour is full of new ideas and inspiration to make your home a happier, healthier place to live.

Purchase $10 tickets ahead of time at the downtown Community Food Co-op, Village Books & Paper Dreams in Fairhaven, and the RE Store. Tickets are also available on the day of the tour at all tour stops (cash/check only).
