The Town of Morrisville will honor the earth by having an Earth Day Celebration & Green Day event on Saturday, April 30th.

The Earth Day Celebration will coincide with the Western Wake Farmers’ Market at the Healthy Food Hub.

There will be demonstrations by the Town’s Education Garden, (see flowers currently planted at the Ed. Garden) the ToM Stormwater team (including the option to order rain barrels), as well as the Town of Cary’s water resources team on the importance of keeping our water clean and safe.

Kids’ activities including a seed paper demonstration and a textile upcycling event will be facilitated by the youth leadership group, Dedicated to Our Community NC.  Don’t forget to support our local farmers who will have extra special items in celebration of Earth Day! Additional participants include Trader Joe’s – Morrisville, who will discuss food waste solutions and the importance of volunteering within our community.
