Come celebrate Earth Day with us!
Sustainable Mason’s Earth Day EcoFest & LLC Block Party is an outdoor sustainability festival. It will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd, from 11:00am-2:00pm on the lawn behind the MIX@Fenwick Library (it is the flat lawn between the MIX and Sandbridge Hall). [Rain backup location = inside the MIX@Fenwick, same day/ time].
This open air/ outdoor festival is a collaboration between the Office of Sustainability, Mason LLCs, and Mason Dining, and will feature many Mason and community partners. Stop by to learn what Sustainable Mason can offer you including... Smithsonian at Mason courses, sustainable study abroad or trips opportunities (#Peru #Caribbean?! etc), funding and projects through the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and PGF, Living Learning Communities, and 'green' student groups... also check out what other students are up to (#SustainabilityProjects). Also take part in activities like creating seed pods or learning how to compost!
There will be mini-Farmer’s Market & sustainability product market (!!), as well as GOGA's Annual Seedling Sale – so be sure to bring a few bucks to support 'green' products like Mason's very own honey, or goat milk soap, and get your plants!
We will also have places for folks to create their own art projects ("paint" your own FREE reusable Starbucks cup, or color in an adult coloring book on the lawn), draw inspiration from some of Mason's sculpture and upcycling artists work around you!
We will have donation boxes – have any extra clothes you're not taking with you? Bring your clean, lightly used clothes and shoes or even a bike you want to donate (instead of leaving it behind at Move Out)!
And of course it wouldn't be a Mason event without some FREE giveaways, as well as plenty of FREE food and FREE smoothies as well (while supplies last!)
