People around the world recently celebrated Earth Hour. Now you need to get ready for Earth Week!

The Town of Huntsville has created programming with the Public Library, providing a week’s worth of activities from April 22nd to 27th.

Earth Day has been an event ever since April 22nd, 1970.

Many of the programs are free and great for the whole family.

There are workshops involving waste reduction, focusing on single-use plastics in the bathroom and kitchen.

Celebrations include:

  • Storytime and up-cycled crafts at the Huntsville Public Library
  • Launch of the Urban Streetscape Tree Planting Program
  • Annual Compost Giveaway at Conroy Park
  • Zero Waste Kitchen and Zero Waste Bathroom workshops
  • DIY Beeswax Wraps

The week is capped off with the third annual seedy Saturday in partnership with Eat Local Muskoka. It allows people to connect with local vendors, to learn about and buy seed. You can also get information from the Horticulture Society and pick up all your gardening gear for the spring.

And there will be two guest speakers, with a representative from Four Season Greens talking about hydroponic growing, starting at noon.
