This weekend it sure is. I wanted to steer a little a way from nightlife and, in honor of Earth Day, plug a couple of events going on this Saturday apart of Baltimore Green Week.
The Southeast CDC is hosting the "Go Green, Baltimore!" festival, which will include a birdwalk and mulching and tree care in Patterson Park from 8-11 a.m. Starting at 11 a.m., there will be workshops and demos at the Southeast Anchor Library on everything you need to know about being green in the city: container gardens, backyard greening, and energy-efficient home rehabs. Also have the chance to win a free rain barrel. For more details, see the library's site.
That same day, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Together Brooklyn will be hosting "Main Street Market," located at the park-and-ride lot between South Hanover and Potee streets. The market will feature farmers, artists, craftsmen, green goods, food, drink, and more, including the Brooklyn and Curtis Bay Coalition spring pansy fundraiser. Together Brooklyn hopes this will be the catalyst for an annual event.
Looks like Mother Nature is appreciative, it's supposed to be 83 degrees and sunny on Saturday! Do you guys know of any other Earth Day-inspired things going on this weekend?
