Earth-Friendly Festival

When: Sat., May 31, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014

This is a great one if you’re trying to get your whole family to go green. Organizers welcome all ages and families to come down and learn a little about their impact on the environment.

Festivities include a vendor fair full of local earth-friendly products and companies, or bring the kids and enjoy stories and crafts. Either way, you’ll find something to get you plugged into the ever-evolving green movement. Here’s a quick run-down of the events of the day:

10:30 a.m.: Ross Harding from the Central Indiana Beekeepers Association will present the program, "Understanding and Caring for Honeybees."

11:30 a.m.: families can enjoy a concert by Rockasaurus Rex to kick off the Library's 2014 Summer Reading Program.

12:30 p.m.: Dr. Amanda Miller from the University of Indianapolis Environmental Sustainability Program will present the program, "The Green Family: Environmentalism for All Ages."

2 p.m.: Amy Matthews from South Circle Farms will present the program, "Urban Farming for Beginners."

From 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., attendees may bring their old electronics for the electronics recycling drive with Recycleforce, which requests a $10 donation for disposal of CRT televisions and monitors, and a $20 donation for all refrigerant-containing appliances. Donations are tax deductible.

Price: Free.
