Each year we celebrate Earth Day at Perfect Christmas Tree Farm, in Phillipsburg NJ. The Earth Day Celebration, Apr. 28, 2012, is a community event designed to educate and benefit everyone who attends. The event encourages environmentally aware behaviors such as recycling, using energy efficiently, learning about agriculture, enriching the earth and growing vegetables and flowers.
Highlights of the day include:
- Hay rides around the Christmas tree farm
- Tours of the circa 1780 farmhouse
- REC Solar Exhibit
- Free Movies about environmental issues
- Arts and Crafts for kids, using reusable household items.
- Making ‘Seed Bombs,’ and doing Gorilla Gardening
- ‘Red Wiggler Worm Show’ with Earth Science educator
- Food and music
This year I’m organizing a ‘ReUse Market,’ for our annual event. I invite everyone who has good things to give, sell or trade, to set up shop. Anyone who makes things from reused materials is especially welcome. Farm related items are a plus.
