Come Celebrate Fairfield’s Earth Day on Saturday, May 8th!
If preserving the planet is something you care about, stop by Fairfield Warde High School on May 8th for Fairfield’s annual Earth Day Celebration. From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., there will be exhibits, lectures, lots of music, and activities for the kids.
Are you a bee lover? Have we got something for you! There will be a demonstration from the Backyard Beekeeper’s Association. Learn fun facts about honey, beeswax, pollination, and more.
Fairfield’s own Catch A Healthy Habit as well as Easton-based Skinny Pines and their portable wood-brick oven will be there to offer wholesome goodies made from local and organic ingredients. The Home Depot, one of our biggest supporters to date, will have free give aways.
Exhibitors this year will include Fairfield Green Food Guide, Fairfield Green Drinks, General Motors, Honda of Westport, and the Smart Center along with many others. Visit our web site if you’d like to be an exhibitor this year!
Fairfield’s Earth Day Committee is made up of a cross-section of those who live and work in Fairfield: town government, members of the Department of Public Works, the Board of Education, teachers, students, and interested citizens from the immediate and neighboring communities.
With a growing awareness of global warming and its associated environmental, health, financial and moral issues, we could not think of a better time to join us.
Fairfield’s Earth Day Celebration began in 1999 to observe environmental issues and solutions, just like the first Earth Day in 1970. Made possible by contributions from The Home Depot Foundation, Piaggio Vespa, Maritime Motors, Star 99.9 and other green businesses and volunteers, Fairfield is a leader in action and advocacy for a happier, healthier community.
