Astonishingly diverse 

COLUMBIA, Mo 4/24/15 (Beat Byte)
-- Earth Day returns on its rain day to Columbia, with an astonishingly diverse lineup of exhibitors:  almost 200 artists, artisans, businesses, sustainability experts, pet lovers, food vendors, and government officials seeking to educate the public about the value of going green.

The new Columbia Chapter of the US Green of Chamber Commerce
will be a first-time attendee, asking participants to fill out a brief survey about their vision of the green business space, a booming market of buyers and sellers for everything from organically-grown food to solar panels and electric cars.   

Earth Day is this Sunday, April 26, from 12-7 pm along Elm Street downtown, next to Peace Park.

Based on their names, this year's exhibitors are roughly divided into the following categories.  Beside each name is a booth location.
