Earth Day Celebration

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Bedford Get Together is planning a celebration of Earth Day in Bedford on April 21 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.   This year’s theme for Earth Day is to end plastic pollution, a very ambitious goal but one that we can all begin.  Bedford Central Library, Wharton Garden and Bower Center for the Arts will be the main sites for the exhibits and activities.  In case of rain the activities will move into the Library and Bower Center.

At least 12 additional groups have expressed interest in joining the event and are planning hands on activities or displays that will be free to the public.  They include Land and Table, Master Gardeners, Citizens Climate Lobby, Claytor Nature Studies Center, Bedford Urban Gardens, Bedford County Solid Waste Management and Friends of the Bedford Central Library.   Examples of the some of the activities include creating artwork from recycled book pages, and planting seeds in planters made from recycled paper rolls. Bedford Get Together will also give away oak trees to the first 100 people attending!

Not only can you and your family participate in these fun activities, but Azul and Town Kitchen Provisions will be open and serving Earth Day food.  For your enjoyment, the band The Freaks of Odder will perform that day.  The Freaks play rock music from contemporary artists to punk and alternative bands such as MMJ, Deer Tick, and Clash, to name a few.

If you or your group would like to offer something appropriate for the event, contact Bedford Get Together at bedfordgettogether@gmail.com for more information.
