The modern definition of "keeping up with the Joneses" is competing with the neighbors to be the most environmentally friendly. Vegetable garden? Check. Compost pile? Yep. Solar panels on the roof? Double check. The City of Dallas is touting green living to the fair crowd at the Texas Discovery Gardens Green Exhibit. On Saturday, stop by the Dallas Green Festival to check out eco-friendly products and services, like electronics recycling (you're never going to use that Palm Pilot again), or learn how to garden organically and keep bees and chickens. Enjoy music, art and healthy food (to balance out all that fried fare). The Dallas Green Festival is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park. Visit greendallas.net.
