When we plan the annual Earth Festival, we thoughtfully work to create an event that includes something for everyone. Our 9th festival April 28th at historic Croft Farm focused on “Reduce Plastic – Fantastic!” We also included our popular plant swap, recycle depot dropoff, a rain barrel demonstration, plastic bottle-cap creature craft for children and so many other possibilities to welcome another sustainable feature to your home, school and business.
By all accounts, given the outstanding weather, this was the best-attended Earth Festival in our nine years of planning and hosting the event. Two stages of entertainment, the Phanatic, East Cougar and West Lion, our Plastic Bag ‘monster,’ and so much more created a happy, vibrant event all day.
We have been surveying our vendors, schools and groups as well as our generous sponsors to consider how we can make our 10th festival in 2019 even more engaging for South Jersey. You are always welcome to email us with your thoughts – EarthFest@sustainablecherryhill.org.
