Engage in bicycle maintenance basics with Chuck Harney of The Bike Rack. Get ready to go over basic tuning, cycling safety, and what you can do to ensure smooth riding for you and your bike!

Help maintain an energy efficient household for your family by checking out tips from Jason Holstine of the Amicus Green Building Center!

Also, if you've ever wondered how to maintain a healthy, happy and active back yard, check out seasonal Mid-Atlantic gardening with Kathy Jentz of Washington Gardener Magazine, and join farming expert, Kevin Fletcher (Countryside Organics), for a workshop on raising your own urban chickens.

This is just a sample of the hands-on fun you will find all weekend at the DIY Stage!
