Earth DayApril 19, 2014 Brown Bag Lunch in the Garden Dinner Out on the way home
Join us for the 2014 Earth Day Celebration, Protecting & Preserving Our Planet, on Saturday, April 19th, 2014 from 10am-4pm. For an album of photos from the 2013 event, visit our Facebook page.
The grand winner of the 15th Annual Oregon Garden Earth Day Fair poster contest has been selected by a local panel of judges. Adeline Satya, a kindergarten student at Valley Inquiry Charter School, was the winner for both her age category and for the grand prize—the first kindergarten student ever chosen for this honor. Adeline’s entry will be used for this year’s poster and other promotional ads.
