Now in its 28th year, Earth Celebration Day includes dozens of exhibitor displays featuring everything from gardening and beekeeping to eco-friendly products and services. Student art is featured on the clothesline exhibit.
“We are delighted to have many new exhibitors and artists this year, along with the popular returnees. A wide variety of specialties and interests are represented,” said Kathy Helfrick, coordinator of exhibitors and artists.
At 12:30 p.m., a tree planting ceremony will celebrate Waynesboro’s 200th birthday, sponsored by the Waynesboro Shade Tree Commission and WaynesboroFest.
Following the tree planting, Renfrew Institute’s Environmental Artistry Award will be presented, followed by an Earth Celebration Day proclamation from the Franklin County Commissioners at 1 p.m.
The Nicodemus Center for Ceramic Arts will host a children’s table, where kids can make clay balls and roll them in flower seeds. These may be planted in the ground.
Another attraction for kids features Earth Day stories in the summer kitchen from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., by storyteller Larry Hayes.
In addition to environmental exhibits and activities, area artists will display, demonstrate and sell their works during the Festival of Art. These include a variety of fine art, jewelry, photography, basketry, garden art, pottery and more. Earth themes will be in the spotlight.
