Earth Day gives us a chance to appreciate what the Earth has given us while working together to find new ways to be more sustainable and preserve the earth for generations to
come. Here in Orlando we are lucky enough to have a huge gathering in Lake Eola Park hosted by Vegetarians of Central Florida. At this year’s 11th annual event there is expected to be over 200 booths set up featuring vendors, education, and fun activities centered around Earth. There will also be music, guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, and raffles where you have chances to win great prizes that are eco-friendly.
We spoke with Ryan Feinberg, a board member of Vegetarians of Central Florida, about the upcoming event where he said, “Our goal is to bring the Central Florida community together and to promote everything sustainable and progressive happening in town. We hope our guests will learn about how they can contribute in a positive way to the many important environmental issues facing Florida, the US, and the world and will leave the event with optimism and some good ideas. One thing that we are especially excited about this year is the SmART Competition, an art contest for grade school students that encourages them to use recycled and reused materials. The winning student’s school will receive a community garden provided by the Simple Living Institute.”
Attend Central Florida Earth Day this Saturday, April 23rd from 10am-6pm at Lake Eola Park and join the movement to keep our Earth healthy and thriving. For more information check out the official website here: http://www.cfearthday.org.
