"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Pick Up Festival Trash

The project:
Pick up random trash at music festival camp.


Why bother?
It is no exaggeration to say thousands of people make a home of this 40-acre facility over the course of this three-day event. While an amazing number of them pick up after themselves, random bits of trash are inevitable. The girls and I tried to lend a hand by picking up the pieces that fell in our paths.

Worth it?
This festival, a fundraiser for our local public radio station, is made possible in large part by a cadre of volunteers who work night and day (no. really.) to set up, clean up, feed, entertain and tear down. They can use all the help they can get.
