It’s Earth Day. Which is a little funny since, when you live on Earth and haven’t really got any other options, everyday is Earth Day, in a sense. But certainly it’s good to set aside time to celebrate this planet we live on, and to remember the ways in which we can continue to care for it and to engage with all the natural wonders that are just outside our doors. Helping lead the charge is Baltimore Green Works, whose 10th Annual Green Week celebrations include everything from lunchtime bike rides and lectures, to tree identification walks and tastings of local foods.
Green Week’s events began a few days ago, but there’s still plenty to catch. Every day from now until the 27th there are a variety of activities you can take part in. The events are spread throughout the city, and a brochure is available online to help you choose which events you’d like to attend. Introductions to beekeeping, herb gardening, detoxifying your kitchen, and bicycle tours of different areas are just some of the week’s highlights. On the 27th, you can wrap everything up by partying down at Eco-Fest with workshops, performances, food and more in Druid Hill Park. Maybe we can’t “make it Earth Day every day,” but we can at least give this planet we live on the better part of a week. Right?
