For five years, the Shakori Hills Spring Festival has been among the season's highlights for its music, arts and community. Now festival organizers have added a sustainability fair to its extravaganza, April 19-22, on the 75-acre Shakori homestead near Silk Hope in Chatham County.

"We're putting an emphasis on community," fair coordinator Pierre Lauffer says. "It fits into a philosophy people are pursuing in Chatham County. More and more people are dedicated to sustainable living."

Local citizens' groups and business owners will give presentations on organic agriculture, solar energy, biofuels, green building and water protection. And if you don't want to drive, a shuttle bus (fueled by biodiesel) will run between the festival, Durham, Carrboro and Chapel Hill. We have more Shakori coverage this week in 8 Days a Week and Music Spotlights; for ticket prices, hours, shuttle schedule and directions:
