Dear Green Source DFW readers,
Here are my recommendations for speakers at Earth Day Texas. There are talks on voting, water sense, extinction (film) and many other topics. Note that many of my choices have to do with food. I guess I was hungry when I was choosing.  Comments are invited.

Earth Day is officially celebrated April 22, but North Texas cities stretch out the holiday for four weeks starting in late March.

That's good news for greenies because that means fewer events overlap and you can attend an ecofest every week for a month. Check out the line up below – all events are free.
