2nd Annual Earth Day Celebration and Children's Garden Fair

WHAT: A family-friendly day of entertainment, activities, food and giveaways. A celebration of Spring, Compost, and the Magic of turning ''waste" into a resource.

COST: Free!

 

The centerpiece of the celebration is two performances of "The Adventures of Pistachio: a Brooklyn Girl made from Trash" a musical play for children 3-8 years old. In it, our hero Pistachio and a colorful cast of characters save the world from waste and villain 'useless' garbage, by turning it into compost and crafts. *Performances at 11 AM and 1 PM.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
