Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s all free–admission to the Oregon Garden, including all Earth Day exhibits, lectures, and performances. The theme is “Sustainable Agriculture,” highlighting the roles of composting, recycling, renewable energy, energy conservation, sustainable plants, and soil and water resources in the farm, garden, or backyard landscape. A cool organization affiliated with OSU, called SPROut, (Sustainable Plant Research and Outreach) has organized this.

Pringle Creek (Sustainable Living Center director James Santana and others) will be there all day and will be giving a presentation–scheduled for 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. That will be the highlight; here is the rest:

  • Over 35 indoor exhibitors
  • Demonstrations, lectures, kids activities, and performances
  • Special early film screening of “The Real Dirt on Farmer John”
  • Kids (and adults) will be able to make a planter from recycled materials to take home
  • Solar energy and composting demonstrations
  • Book signings by garden authors
  • Local Oregon music groups to perform throughout the day
  • Specialty tours showing ‘behind-the-scenes’ of Garden areas
