Earth Day Successes!

Earth Day is now behind us, and photos and feedback are coming in!  Here's what our staff had to say about their experiences over the weekend:

Clara Buitrago at Hamden Earth Day
We had a booth at the April 21st Earth Day Celebration, at the Middle school in Hamden, CT. We also offered three 20 minute workshops for attendees. The two workshop presenters were Annie Mixsell and John Tycz, who are both Accredited Land Care Professionals. The event was extremely well attended! We met many wonderful people, and had a steady number of people stopping by at our booth to ask questions and pickup informational materials. Thanks to all that attended the workshops and stopped by to say hi!
-Clara Buitrago, Organic Land Care Accreditation Manager

Outreach material at Hamden Earth Day
I represented CT NOFA at the Woodbury Community Earth Day in Hollow Park on April 21, 2012.  This Earth Day Event has grown to a huge celebration with over 130 exhibitors and lots of attendees!  We were excited to give out our brand new 2012-2013 Farm and Food Guide, and also enjoyed apples from our vendor-neighbors, Urban Oaks Farm from New Britain! It was a great day, thank you to New Morning and to the Woodbury Earth Day Committee for doing such a great job planning, and to all the people who attended!
-Kristiane Huber, Events and Outreach Coordinator
