Earth Day 2017 was a huge success! The event kicked off with a successful community service filled-morning with 78 volunteers contributing 117 service hours to clean up over 85 bags of trash and recycling. The afternoon event attracted over 2,000 attendees and 50 local organizations and vendors. Earth Day 2017 featured live performances from Sambatuque, Heartwood and The Sundowners. There were three free workshops including backyard chicken keeping, backyard goat keeping and honeybees.
