Citizens Invited to Celebrate Earth Day
Earth Day Fair at the Davidson Farmer’s Market on Saturday, April 26

Earth Day is celebrated annually around the world on April 22. The Town of Davidson and Green Davidson community group invite citizens to the Earth Day Fair on Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Davidson Farmer’s Market (behind Summit Coffee and adjacent to town hall).

The event will include:

• A Bike/Walk to the Market Challenge -- if you travel ‘carbon free’ to the event you can earn a Farmer’s Market “Buck.” Please stop by the Green Davidson booth for your prize.
• Getting started with backyard chickens, sponsored by the Davidson Green Center/School
• Cooking with the Sun -- see a solar power oven in action and sample a cookie.
• Recycle It! Mecklenburg County Wipe Out Waste – learn about recycling, hazardous waste and more. Don’t forget to guess what new item can be recycled!
• Compost at home: Visit with hungry worms and find out how they can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Three types of composting will be discussed.
• Children’s activities: Earth Day fun with Davidson Lands Conservancy’s World of Wonder, green arts and crafts, face painting, and more.
