From the organizers:
“As a response to continued environmental degradation, Senator Gaylord Nelson proclaimed the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. Communities around the nation and world have since used this occasion to promote environmental awareness and advocacy. For over 40 years, the Shoals has joined forces with others promoting eco-friendly practices. In April of 2008, Earth Month in the Shoals became an official community-wide, month-long celebration with events appealing to all ages and diverse groups. As we celebrate Earth Day’s 48th anniversary, we can reflect on how far we have come and how important it is to continue to protect the Earth for our future generations.”
Mothering Herbs will have a variety of organic herbal products including herbal teas, balms, lotions, soaps, home and body sprays, gift baskets and more! Message us to place your order and pick it up the day of at our table.
Family-friendly activities are highlighted, including a children’s activity tent, eco-entertainer Steve Trash, all-day live music, art and crafts vendors, food, juggling, recycling drop off, pet adoption, and Earth-friendly booths with information on solar energy, organic gardening, and much more!
