Brew City Gardens‘ Earth Day activities include:

– Parent and tot time with composting worms: At 10 a.m., small children will be able to learn about how composting restores the earth and look inside a real, active worm compost bin. They can even hold their own worm friends.

– Free composting classes: At Noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Brew City Gardens owner “Compost Steve” will explain the basics of worm composting in free micro-classes open to all.

– A 20 percent off store-wide sale on all products, with some products on clearance.

– A 20 percent discount on pre-orders for two types of tumbling compost bins: a double-sided bin and a single chamber bin (pre-ordered compost bins will be available for pick-up in early May).

– Free seeds in exchange for kitchen scraps: Brew City Gardens welcomes the community to bring in buckets of vegetable-based kitchen scraps for composting. Anyone who brings in a bucket of scraps will receive a free packet of High Mowing Organics seeds! No meat, dairy, salty or oily foods or pet waste, please.

– Plastic bag recycling: On Earth Day, Brew City gardens will also begin regular collection of plastic bags in order to recycle them for the community. Clean, dry plastic bags of all types are welcome.

– Refreshments: Light, healthy refreshments will be offered throughout the day.

“Earth Day is an important day to recognize the work we can all be doing every day to make our world greener and healthier,” said Steve Anderson, co-owner of Brew City Gardens. “We are excited to celebrate the occasion by educating people of all ages about things they can do every day to live more sustainably.”
