Happy Earth Day 2021!
Today is Earth Day. It’s a great day to celebrate our connection to the Earth, and also to re-commit in our responsibility as environmental stewards. The theme of Earth Day 2021 is #RestoreOurEarth, and a great way to do this is through our relationship with food.
This year, we invite you to plant your own garden. Whether that’s in your yard, containers on your balcony, or near a sunny window in your house.
To support you in this, we’re hosting a SEED GIVEAWAY.
When: May 6
Where: Municipal Hall, 1903 Mt Newton Cross Rd, Saanichton
Time: 12:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Come pick up some vegetable, herb, and local native wildflower seeds.
Local food systems are so critical to local climate resilience. They reduce the distance our food travels to get to us, reduce food waste, and increase our appreciation for the communities and ecosystems that feed us.
Hope to see you May 6! Remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Happy Earth Day!
