This year’s Ecological Celebration, features local producers of clean and quality produce, handcrafted products, ecological food, natural cosmetics and cleaning products. Present also will be organized entities and groups of ecology, sustainability and biodiversity, active on matters of ecology such as natural agriculture, creation of urban gardens, recycling, environment educational programs and natural health.
