Our Earth Day event takes place this year in the heart of the village on Main Street in the Veterans Park Gazebo. Featuring music, kid’s activities, vendors, local environmental groups, government agencies and businesses. Demonstrations and art projects that teach global awareness and local action. Visitors will enjoy a day of Earth-friendly how-to’s ― such as recycling, gardening and composting tips — plus a diverse line-up of local artists providing live music; vendors and artisans offering environmentally friendly and sustainable products and services; children’s activities; delicious natural foods, and loads of family fun.

Kids’ activities will include art projects, an Earth Day facts scavenger hunt, face painting and henna tattoos. Admission is free. A rain date is scheduled for April 19th.

Earth Day Nyack is pleased this year to welcome the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners will hold an organic gardening workshop from 12pm – 1pm. Visitors are invited to participate in the workshop and take home some great tips and a free seed pack.  Other exciting highlights include seed planting activities hosted by Rockland Farm Alliance, a vermicompost bin, samplings from Alliance’s greenhouse and microgreen tasting.

As in past years, Keep Rockland Beautiful will begin and end their Community Clean-up project at the Earth Day Nyack event site. Interested participants should meet at 9:30am to join a clean-up crew at the Gazebo before Earth Day Nyack kicks off later in the day. Check their website for details: http://www.keeprocklandbeautiful.org.

This event is made possible by the generosity of sponsors Solar Maximum, provider of high-performing, cost- efficient, environmentally responsible solar energy solutions, and Sweet Peas Market, Rockland’s original organic food market, offering the best in fresh, organic groceries and prepared foods. Stop by the tables of local environmental groups and government agencies.
