Earth Day Community Gathering

"This Earth Day, celebrate the planet we live on with good food and great people. Everyone's invited"

The Lewisboro Sustainability Committee and Katonah Green invite you to a community celebration of Earth Day. 


FOOD + FUN + MUSIC
Sustainable Foods Potluck Picnic. Bring a dish to share.


    * Eat Smart     * Eat  Local      * Eat Sustainably
    * Eat Green      * Eat Out

We'll use the Slow Food principles of good, clean, fair food for this event, as well as make it a zero waste picnic. That means:

  • do your best to use food that is grown sustainably, local, and is clean (organic, whether certified or not).
  • bring  your own reuseable cutlery, plates, cups, bowls, and serving ware; cloth napkins. NO DISPOSABLES PLS
  • Know where your food comes from!

It's inspiring when people share what they'll be bringing, or post here to ask for ideas.
    
Since it's Earth Day, let's celebrate vegetarianism for this picnic, so we can perhaps inspire a move towards a plant-based diet. Need recipe or menu ideas? Post a message on the Lewisboro Sustainability Committee's Facebook page or the Katonah Green Facebook page and ask. You'll be sure to get lots of great responses!

MUSIC
Bring your voice, your instruments, your drums, your song books. It'll be open-jam style before and after dinner. 

COMMUNITY

Break bread with some new planet-loving neighbors, meet some people who are doing some great local environmental work, network, chat, laugh, relax and enjoy the company!

If you represent or are a member of another environmental or conservation group, please let us know when you RSVP!

FUN

There will be some organized children's activities. Bring frisbees and non-electronic games.


PLACE
The Cyrus Russell Community House is located at 779 ROUTE 35 Cross River, NY directly across the road from Yellow Monkey Village. There is a kitchen if you need to warm up a dish or get water. There is also a bathroom (hooray!)

    Another terrific Heather Fluornoy Production! Great turnout in the pouring rain ... The Cyrus Russell House was alive with the sound of music, poetry, healthy food and bright speakers that illuminated this cozy landmark. Happy Earth Day to Katonah Green and Beyond

    drums & llute could have been sacred background through most of the afternoon. Special thanks to Heather and the primary drummer, and all. Special thanks to the people who brought extra place settings.

    So beautiful to see so many committed and soulful people there! Terrific planning and set up as well. I really liked the candles on the tables and no electric lights! The room needs a wood burning stove for the winter months!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
