APRIL 21-22

FAIR PARK
FREE ADMISSION


Earth Day Dallas features two days of engaging exhibits, compelling speakers, music, entertainment, food and fun for everyone. Join us April 21-22, 2012 in Fair Park to see how you can make a difference.
Mission:  Learn. Grow.

Celebrate Earth Day at this fun festival with exhibits, speakers, films, music, food & more focused on making a positive impact on our environment.

The heart of the festival is the Eco Expo, and exhibitors will use their presence to promote their achievements as green leaders, and teach attendees how to take environmentally responsible action by better utilizing available resources, switching to eco-friendly products, or joining their organizations.

In addition to the Eco Expo, attendees will have a number of educational entertainment options, which will include:

4th annual event. Trawick Pavilion offers basketball, sand volleyball, lake access for swimming, a children's playground, and more! 

Your payment includes vegan burgers & hot dogs and helps pay the fee for reserving the pavilion.

Bring a vegan dish. You’ll be prompted to sign up for a potluck item after you submit payment for the event.

$6/adult ($8 after 4/12) and $4/children 4-17 ($6 after 4/12), and children 3 and under get in free.

Learn how to grow herbs and pick up some tasty recipes.

Learn how to make the best use of limited spaces inside and outside your apartment, condo or other tight areas. Almost any sunny spot can serve as a small garden - including your kitchen, bathroom or even a bedroom. We’ll discuss space saving techniques such as “trellising,” hanging baskets and wall mounted grow boxes, as well as traditional containers. We’ll also teach organic growing basics including planting, fertilizing and harvesting.

Meetup at ITSO Vegan, which held a soft opening on Jan. 26. Their menu offers a variety of vegan foods. Raffle for the documentary Forks Over Knives.

Edible landscapes are one of the hottest trends in garden design! Utiliz­ing areas in your landscape to grow edibles is a great way to add food to your table and reduce your grocery bill. This program teaches you how to incorporate edible plants into your home gar­den and landscape by taking advantage of their ornamental value. You will learn how herbs, fruits and vegetables can add to the colors and textures of your permanent landscape combin­ing both aesthetics’ and functionality.

Free.

Learn about delicious local wild foods, how to prep and cook with them and how they can provide an amazing source of sustainable food, during a two-day hands-on campout event on an organic, family farm in beautiful North Texas. Dinners, campsites provided!

In this workshop for all ages, we will learn about the Native American tradition of the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - and why they work so well together in the garden. We will discuss the importance of cooperation, compatibility, and getting along with each other (in the garden and in life). Participants will plant pots of corn, beans and squash to bring home, along with some ideas for how to incorporate these into your summer garden. While this planting is more suitable to a large garden space, we will also discuss container and small space options.
