Earth Day Event
A Newport Hills Earth Day event is in the early planning stages for Saturday April 25. The idea is to promote a community garden in the business center during the transition from gigantic parking lot to thriving focal point.
We plan to have people bring containers from home and have soil, seeds, plants and demo models on display for the purpose of raising neighbors' awareness of the importance of sustainability. Recycling, composting, saving water and decreasing pollution and runoff, as well as raising food are all going to play a part.
One possible site includes the highly visible and sun-drenched (when it's not raining) south end of Stod's across the street from a small Metro Park n' Ride.
