Local Food & Local Community for a Global Celebration (Earth Day)

It’s our biggest Earth Day yet and we’re getting excited!

Make a World of Difference this Earth Day

Make a World of Difference this Earth Day

Did you know that Earth Day was founded in the United States in April of 1970 and is now celebrated by over 1 billion people in over 170 countries world wide?  Wow!

Earth Day opens the door for us to to take positive personal action. It is indeed the personal small actions that create big change.   Making better choices (even small ones)  will inevitably influence those around you and inspire others to take positive action.

So what are we doing to make a positive impact this Earth Day?

For the last few years The World In A Garden has been celebrating Earth day with local food grown free of chemicals, GMO’s and treated soil. We team up with our local partners who also like to tread gently on the Earth.

Each year we team up with Growing City who take waste from your kitchen to compost –  diverting roughly 190 metric tonnes of waste, or 485 metric tonnes of CO2 from local offices in the past two years!

And this year we’re kicking off our Earth Day celebrations on Thursday, April 19th as we team up with our friends at Whole Foods Market at all 4 Vancouver locations to talk about all things organic  (like compost) and make seed bombs. Whole Foods will be donating 5% of all sales back to The World In A Garden. 

Join us and our friends from Patch, Eco-Soil, Growing City and Green Can Program of W.Van. It’s a line up of treats from food samples to soil so save your grocery shopping day for Thursday, April 19th when even your shopping dollars can make a world of difference!

You can also find us at Greens Market on Saturday April 21, 2012 and on Sunday, April 22nd at the garden and Rocky Mountain Flatbread company for more Potato Fusion workshops! Come on out this Earth day and get involved in your local community and join the global celebration!

Do good to create good. It inspires change.
