The event was created by Roo Cantada with some friends in 1999 as a small San Juan Ridge music venue which has grown to encompass the whole community coming together to work toward a common vision of sustainability.
This year speakers will be coordinated by Mud And Pearls, a local organization that hosts hands on workshops. The short talks and workshops will feature a wide range of topics including solar power, alternative building, etc. Organizers hope to have more workshops and hands on learning than in years past.
Informational, organic food and craft vendors booths will fill in the pine shaded grounds of the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center along with a kid's space and performance, and picnic area.
"Throughout the years, and with the community's commitment to positive change, Ridgestock has featured renowned speakers on topics such as alternative energy sources, cob and strawbale building, organic gardening and farming, energy efficient cars, local economy forums, and more." The events website states.
