It’s easy to be green this weekend

It’s a full month before Earth Day is celebrated, but Birmingham’s already providing a couple of opportunities to be “green” this weekend.

Tomorrow the Green Resource Center for Alabama will be hosting its second annual Clover Crawl, being held this year at Vulcan Park. This year’s event will include a Green Home & Garden Expo and serve as the drop-off point for this year’s Ecycling Day activities, courtesy of TechBirmingham. You’ll be able to drop off items in the lower parking lot at the site (no TVs please).

For those wanting to partake in the warm weather and take in some greenery, there’s the Japanese Gardens Cherry Blossom Viewing at the Birmingham Botancial Gardens tomorrow starting at 11 a.m.

Looking for other more general options, let Jason be your guide over on Timetable.

For those in the city’s ever emerging Tech community some folks have wondered about the current status of TechBirmingham. Well, the non-profit entity has relaunched their website this morning. It’s been set up to be “a front door to our technology community and to give everyone an opportunity to learn more about TechBirmingham’s many initiatives.”So go on over and check it out.

Incidentally, you may want to see if you can still sign up for this year’s TechMixer University on August 19, the largest technology event ever in the state of Alabama…

TechMixer Expo 2008, McWane Scence Center

TechMixer Expo 2008 is a technology networking event organized by TechBirmingham and sponsored by morethan 30 technology organizations and companies.  It’s the four ever event, allowing tech professionals and enthusiasts from the region to learn more about the area’s numerous technology user groups as well as providing a venue to share ideas.

If you’re a member of a tech user group you can participate by reserving a free table and staffing that table with someone from your group that can talk about what it offers.

Oh yeah, it’s FREE!
