Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - The Living Green Conference featured a variety of opportunities for locals to gain insight on how to lessen their impact on the environment in a fun—and affordable—manner.

Over 30 vendors offered tips on everything from energy efficiency, living sustainability, perma–culture, urban agriculture and climate change.

Emily Homan—with Happy Gardener—said any event that helps people protect their environment helps put attendees in a great—and green—mood.

"People seem really excited. I think they are really excited to do the breakout sessions. I think they're really excited to get all the information. I've done a lot of events like this and they are always very excited," said Homan.

The event was hosted by organizations and businesses such as Eco–librium 3, WLSSD, the League of Women Voters and Lake Superior College.
