If you’ve never been to Earth Day in Longview/Kelso, then you should plan to make a trek this April 15th and see what all the fun is about! Very kid friendly, so bring the fam.
The Earth Day celebration coincides with the Farmer’s Market – which is always a big hit in this area, featuring fresh local produce, honey, plants and crafts. Be sure to visit the market before 2pm or you will miss out on the goodies that you can take home with you. At this time of the year, there will be bare root stock to choose from, as well as some early-spring vegetables. It’s always neat to chat with folks that populate the Farmers Market.
Earth Day is observed on April 22nd and was started in the United States in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson to create awareness for the Earth’s environment and to encourage conservation efforts. In 1990, Earth Day was taken international, and today, more than 500 million people in 175 countries observe Earth Day.
