On this day, last year, we attended the Ecology Center’s – Grow Your Own – Earth Day Celebration. The Grow Your Own event is an annual tradition to celebrate an abundant earth and vibrant communities.
This year the “Grow Your Own – Spring Festival” will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016,
The event was filled with earth friendly crafts for the kids and plenty of giveaways for the adults.
We enjoyed live music and yummy samples from food and drink vendors.
The family friendly festival was a celebration of all things green!
My girls loved petting the chickens and learned so much about them, they now want chickens.
I don’t know if it’s on the agenda this year but kids loved making Tee-pee’s.
The celebration consists of harvesting, gardening, and a more abundant future.
This year, they are excited to include opportunities to learn garden skills and have your questions answered by The Ecology Center’s own experts. We had a fantastic time last year.
The great news is the Admission is FREE at this year’s Grow Your Own! Spring Festival.
