Bedford 2030 Earth Day Festival is May 2, 2021
The Bedford 2030 Earth Day Festival, co-hosted by Bedford 2030 and Healthy Yards, will take place May 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Bedford Hills Train Station. Visitors to this free, family-friendly event can shop for plant and garden items while enjoying live music.
“The annual Earth Day Festival is a wonderful opportunity to bring our community together and share ways to take climate action now. We’ll have a plant swap, native pollinator plant packs for sale, kids’ activities and lots of great partners tabling with information on healthy yard practices and sustainable solutions,” says Erin Glocke, community engagement manager at Bedford 2030. “We have several protocols in place this year to ensure everyone’s safety, so we are excited to welcome our community back for an afternoon of fun, celebrating our planet, and committing to making it a healthier, greener place for all.”
There will also be native plants and trees, compost made from Bedford food scraps, composting materials, and Hilltop Hanover vegetables for sale.
Nonprofits or environmentally friendly businesses that want a table at the festival, or anyone interested in volunteering (including students needing community service credit), can sign up at HealthyYards.org/earthdaysignup/.
Social distancing and masks will be required. There will be free parking in the train station parking lot
