Homegrown Music Festival moves forward in third year

New Digs, Same Sustainability


"We really learned how to throw a music festival. We learned how to incorporate sustainability aspects into the festival to make sure that we keep our waste to a minimum, that we try to create as much energy as we use, try to offset as much as we can through solar [energy], and basically try to keep our footprint as small as possible."
