“Make your mother proud” is the theme of this year’s Earth Day Festival, and the festival will give you all kinds of opportunities to put a smile on Mother Earth’s face.
The Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday at Centennial Park.
There will be a scavenger hunt, with a green twist, and there will be multiple opportunities to recycle goods ranging from bikes and bike helmets to new or gently worn shoes.
There will be plenty of music and craft activities for kids, and all sorts of chances to learn about being green. There will be sessions on running vehicles off the sun and water, several programs on electric cars, points for composting, as well as information on hiking and wildlife.
Eating locally and seasonally will be a key part of the festival, with information on everything from wild edibles to preserving food.
Speaking of eating, there will be lots of good food, from vegetarian choices to kettle corn to pizza.
This is just a sampling of what will be going on. Visit www.nashvilleearthday.org to learn more. Hope I see you there!

Karen reschedules meet-and-greet for District 29 at Gran Dale Mansion to Saturday, April 30 from 2pm until 5 pm
Attorney David Waynick and his wife Becky were instrumental in saving and preserving this historic treasure that graces our community. “Having this get-together at Gran Dale Mansion is extra special for our district. As a member of the Tennessee Preservation Trust and a supporter of Historic Nashville, I applaud them for preserving this rich history that is a part of District 29.”
Karen Johnson, a candidate for Metro Council in the 29th District, invites residents of the district to stop by the Gran Dale Mansion from 2-5 p.m. April 9 (this Saturday).
“This is an opportunity for Your voice to be heard. This invitation is for you and your family to come and speak about the issues that are important to you.” Johnson said.
Located just off of Murfreesboro Pike at 200 Nashboro Blvd., Gran Dale Mansion was built in 1859. Its architectural highlight is a central portico with two large columns.
Please come out and share what issues matter to you and how we can work together to make good things happen for our families.
Metro Council elections will be held Aug. 4, with early voting beginning July 15.
