This year marks the thirteenth anniversary of Earth Festival, set for Saturday, April 22 at Milford Central School!
The traditional information and vendor fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the gymnasium – kicking off the day will be the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society's popular pre-festival bird walk.
Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties will return with Spring Garden Day in conjunction with Earth Festival, featuring classes on a wide variety of gardening topics suitable for those both new and experienced to gardening.
In keeping with the earth-friendly theme, event organizers invite attendees to drop off Styrofoam (clean, white only), pellet bags, bubble wrap, empty inkjet cartridges, cell phones, eyeglasses, reusable shoes, videotapes and CDs, used nylon monofilament fishing line and more. Empire Recycling will be back with the Confidata Shredder from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the EcoArt/Trendy Trash Contest and expanded children's activities will also be featured.
Earth Festival is an environmentally-focused, interactive event featuring exhibits, activities, vendors and entertainment, all with a fun, earth-friendly twist. Financial contributions are most welcome, and an open invitation to earth-friendly exhibitors, food and retail vendors is extended.
